Fresh cap was about 2.5cm. I’d be happy to send it to someone for microscopy.

This looks a little bit too large for P. cyanopus

There are some other greenish Pluteus species known from the bay area such as Pluteus phaeocyanopus which was described from the Crystal Springs Watershed just a few miles to the north. Microscopy would be helpful, did you save this?

nice find!!

Green stipe yes, odor no

The stipe is very green. No odor. I get the impression that that and the textured (striate, wrinkled, bumpy) cap eliminate salicinus specifically? Is P. cyanopus in the salicinus group?
