but you were right about aeruginascens having smooth tomentum.
The micro shots show a rough surface on the hyphae though, so that would confirm aeruginosa. But I recognized the species on the pale coloured hymenium and constistently round shape…

I see what you mean

I scan info so quickly sometimes I forget what details add up to what. Thank you for the correction. Smooth tomentums = C. aeruginosa http://www.mushroomexpert.com/...
