That Inocybe is not listed from the Northeastern USA as far as I can determine. It is on the Quebec website but without any photos. So it is likely rare, rarely identified, if present at all. I have seen this mushroom in Ontario, New York, Rhode Island and West Virginia. Each time it was brought in at a foray and I do not know if the collections were saved. If I ever see it again I will make sure that it is preserved. I have a hunch that the host might be an Amanita but without DNA work, it is just a guess.

Who’s the host?

Nice obs! Any ideas who the host is?

I have read that Inocybe oblectabilis is supposed to be the one, but has it been confirmed by molecular methods? Have you seen any of those in the area?
