the group of species around Pluteus plautus has a very complicated taxonomy that we have not fully unraveled yet. There are many species that have been described in this group both in Europe (plautus, granulatus, boudieri, semibulbosus, depauperatus etc…) and also in North America (atriavellaneus, unakensis, griseibrunneus, etc…). Morphological differences between species are usually subtle but some of them have already been proven to be quite distinct on molecular grounds.

The external morphology of your collection resembles what I would call in Europe Pluteus granulatus (brown cap, markedly granulose at center becoming less granulose towards margin, striate margin).

Thanks Fredo
