no, I don’t know him, he is from Switzerland but does research in New Zealand and those areas far away from me. It is his book “Die Blätterpilze und Röhrlinge Europas”, a succession of the good old Moser which hasn’t been received very well all around the globe but some genera are properly dealt in there because research has been done by specialists for them. To this group belongs the Galerina part.

That just sounds like the 2-spored form of G. vittiformis, which was named G. vittiformis var. vittiformis fr. vittiformis in Smith and Singer. In Kuehner he just called it form bisporis, although he also called it G. rubiginosa.

Wait what is the source for Horak there? Or did you just ask him, don’t you live in the same town there?

I have used Horak for ID.

Difference between G. muricellospora and G. vittiformis according to that book:

Basidia two-spored versus four-spored.
Spores 11-13×6-7 and slightly more limoniform versus 8,5-10×5-6 and almond-shaped.
Caulocystidia over whole length of stipe (in both).
Cap acute conical and reddish orange brown versus blunt conical and yellowish ochre.
Stipe shorter versus stipe longer.
He includes rubiginosa in vittiformis and caulocystidiata in muricellospora.
