Recognized by sight: Hmm the stipes look like they were viscid, based on the amount of debris sticking to them. Also I see a slight yellowish color.

John, M. pura looks like a good suggestion.

The cross-veins seen on the gills is a trait associated with both H. laeta and M. pura. The spore photo is not very good, but it does look like some of the spores show quotient > 2.0, which would favor the M. pura proposal. Interesting that the spores appear to show a wide q-range. Maybe they just tend to align variously while floating around in the KOH?

Good point about the debris, Alan.

I may not have noticed the stickiness at the time, and then they may have dried out in transit. I didn’t examine them until the day after collecting. Guess I missed the evidence in the photo!
