about giving the wrong location. In a hurry when I’m typing, and clicked on the wrong location.

Don’t know where you found this…

but I guarantee it wasn’t at Sweet Creek in Pend Oreille County.

Phil, this sure looks like I. tahquamenonensis…

as seen in B/B/F Mushrooms of NE NA.

But my knowledge of genus Inocybe is quite limited. So I don’t know if there are other possibilities.
