Why not L. cristata – colour is wrong, surface is wrong – L. cristata has flat scales, that are orange-brown, microscopically L. cristata is easy to recognize because of the combination of tightly packed upright narrowly clavate cells in the pileus covering scales, AND those bullet-shaped spores, that are rather small.

These specimens make the impression of having a different kind of pileus covering.

Without some more information on the microscopical characters, identification will be impossible.
