Good points on the morphological considerations — with C. glaucopus though one quickly sees a rather inconsistent outside features, there usually is a small rimmed bulb, but not nearly mandatory as is the case with the calochroid clade where it is always present. I can show many photos. I could have easily seen something in the Variecolores group, but the spores there are large. Looking at the spores here, being that small, I see the glaucopus gr. Single fruitbodies are never optional to id, but I said I see glaucopus more than anything else.
I am not seeing a radially streaked, viscid cap (altho it is a bit shiny, no stuck debris, tho) and there is certainly no rimmed basal blub here.
What are the unifying features for “glaucopus group” designation?
I think this is in the C. glaucopus gr. C. ponderosus usually has that strong smell and the spores tend to be a bit longer.Dimitar
nice contrast with delicate purple gills.
