Recognized by sight: I’m doubtful P. rugosa is a good name for this when there are several ringed Pholiotina species on the west coast, at least in CA, I don’t see why not more north too.

“Characters: Basidiocarp mycenoid, small to medium. Pileus hygrophanous, slightly glutinous, dry micaceous to pruinose, smooth. Veil present as fringes at pileus margin or as distinct ring striate on the upper side. Spores smooth, often slightly phaseoliform, in one species broadly ellipsoidical, with germ-pore. Cheilocystidia distinctly capitate with thin neck, often almost lecythiform. Caulo- and pileocystidia similar. Forests, on soil or litter.

Comments: This is the only section of the genus Pholiotina, in which species with distinct, on the upper side striate ring, and such with only velar fringes at the pileus margin are united, because more value is attached to the characters of cheilocystidia than to the veil conditions (WATLING 1971)."

in which sector (section Intermediae) the single representant is P. intermedia.

About name, as names are a bit confusing to me and after looking for Pholiotinas I found blattaria references (don’t remember where I found it) and tried to propose the name, as it doesn’t exist here, I looked for it in Mycobank, where I found that Conocybe blattaria is still the current name (even it is about to change).

I didn’t find this study till today, but seems interesting, what do you think about?

or at least most of the ringed Pholiotina look similar to each other.

It looks similar to

my obs. http://mushroomobserver.org/151396?q=1dGSu and because of the striated ring I proposed Conocybe blattaria, I don’t know if it is a N.A. sp.
