is definitely a close match. It didn’t come through well in this photo, but there was a blue halo at the stipe apex, which is not a character I associate with E roseum (but then again, I don’t necessarily have field experience with that species).
Overall, the richness of the pink color seems better for E. roseum.

My microscopy showed large, inflated, non-incrusted cells in the pileipellis (not in chains), and heterodiametric, fairly strong-angled spores. I did a very quick mount, and did not see cheilocystidia, but I’ll check again this week.

Christian Schwarz has the specimins, and I am not sure if he has done microscopy yet, but he believed it to be E. aff. catalauicum. I will find out soon what the spores say :)

Did you make any microscopy?

Entoloma roseum is a possibility.
