And the stipe didn’t look quite right. Lepiota asperula could be you guy here but it is a name that hasn’t been used very much in the last 60 years. I check what Helen Smith had to say about it.

Somehow my notes got mixed up when I posted this obs. The spores are definitely dextrinoid. That’s what happens when I do this stuff at 2AM.

the amyloid spores… Spores are also to small. This also has free gills. It is not Leucopholiota decorosa

Amyloid spores?

Then definitely not a Lepiota which would mostly like be atleast weakly dextrinoid. It matches Leucopholiota very well!
