Maybe this is not important, but the cap was only about 2.5 cm, other times that I’ve seen P. deliniata it has been very large and fruiting in fairly large numbers. I have not collected P. rugocephala and I have not looked at micro features for this specimen yet. Also, and maybe this is not that important either, but the other times that I have collected P. deliniata it has been under hardwoods at lower elevations. These were in Spruce-Fir and much higher.
