From the P. rugosa description in Flora Agaricina Neerlandica vol 6

“Following Watling (in Br. Fung. Fl. 3: 92, 95. 1982) several authors
distinguish two species: Pholiotina rugosa sensu stricto with somewhat
stouter basidiocarps with a rugose pileus and larger spores (8.0–10.0 ×
4.5–5.5(6.0) μm) and Ph. filaris with small basidiocarps and small
spores (according to Watling (6.5)7.0–8.5 (9.5) x (4.0)4.5–5.0 μm). In
the studied collections no correlation between spore size and size of
sporocarps was found. Many intermediate collections exist with regard
to the stature of sporocarps and rugosity of the pileus. Therefore, Kits
van Waveren (in Persoonia 6: 156. 1970) is followed in synonymizing
the two species, except for his nomenclature since the name Pholiota
rugosa has priority over Pholiota filaris.”

Wasn’t sure

That’s why I asked. Alan made a statement to that effect once and I haven’t really looked into since. Do you know which publication synonymized filaris and rugosa?

How so?

All the veiled species in FAN6’s first Pholiotina key seem to be described from similar habitats.

The substrate indicate P. rugosa?

No collection?

There are several Pholiotina species with an annulus, I’m not really sure how to identify them without microscopy.

Sorry about the blurry pics. These are pics I took three years ago,when I first started getting into photographing mushrooms.
