What reagent did you use for the spores there? Is that a kinda “true” color, or could that be reagent? I find the odor of Phyllotopsis nidulans to be a little random, but that might just be me being a little random. But if the spores are really tan-brown, then not that, but P. nidulans has slightly dextrinoid spores? I should look up stuff before I just talk off the top of my head.

But having said that, those spores really look like Rhodocybe more then anything else. With the tear-drop shape, and the lightly warted/textured. There are sessile Rhodocybe I believe, but I’m not sure I know of one that is orange? Might be a stretch…
