Thanks for rechecking this obs. I’ve been researching this off and on for a year, then finally decided to post it. Frankly, I don’t know why I called it Conocybe because the stipe is thicker than species of Conocybe that I am familiar with.

Inocybe looks very reasonable!

Hard to explain why I felt Entoloma and feel Inocybe, but I’m more inclined to go with your suggestion, even without obs 144066 to compare… (Nice job finding such a similar one!)

I hope my “Promising” Entoloma suggestion didn’t cause excessive consternation.

Mo, and I found obs. 144066 Inocybe geophylla. This strongly resembles this obs. Input requested.

Thanks Jacob

This has provided much frustration. One would be led to believe that a mushroom with this particular shape would be easy to identify to genus and species. I would call the umbo cuspidate. Am I correct in this assumption? Also; it reminds me of a sombrero.
Whatever species it is, it would be a nifty addition to a field guide.
