Thanks, Douglas.

These mushrooms are gone. Only one survived the night in decent condition, and I used much of it for microscopy. No herbarium specimen. No harm: Judy Roger (OMS) says this Galerina is common here.

Also I think you will find that the spores are not dextrinoid. And there are no clamp connections…
