Yes, we have L. magnispora here, but it is a little different macroscopically and the spores are a different size and shape. Else explains this in post #80875. You also can check Breitenbach “Fungi of Switzerland” Vol. 4 and compare L. clypeolaria and Magnispora (as L. ventriosospora). My concept is that clypeolaria has more pallid scales on the cap, and the stem is a little less shaggy. Maybe Else can elaborate, or correct me.

Hi Drew,

Is there a particular reason that L. magnispora is not applied up in that area of WA?
I think if I found this here, I would use that name, but haven’t researched the differences
between our two areas well enough to know why usage might be different.
