Descriptions and photos are still confusing to me. After reading M. Kuo and M. Wood descriptions I’m still in doubt. However, as these have well defined concentric zones and they are silky and shiny, I’ll assume that is C. perennis.

Just to document, C. cinnamomea was found in Britain associated to conifers: http://www.sciencedirect.com/...

I found another specimen on the floor, I’m going to upload the photo… it’s a bit different.

Could somebody help me on this?

It’s said that C. cinnamomea doesn’t exist here in Europe, but after reading the descriptions of both, I’m in doubt. These are small, and they were under deciduous trees with pines nearby, on roadside. I found some nearer my house, even smaller, I have to upload them. These are C. perennis or cinnamomea?
