any characters inconsistent with what I have seen called or have myself called T. cantharelloides, whether or not this material lacks violet coloration. Forked, shallow, crowded lamellae; very thin, uplifted to infundibuliform, pale brown to lilac pileus, saprotrophic, etc. If you are convinced that this is distinct, I would very much like to see photographs of the material you believe to be conspecific.

I have encountered this species several times in the Cristalino region. Young specimen have same light brown colours on stipe and pileus. All specimen observed have cream colored lamellae ( any pink here added by my camera software). According to Pegler Agaric Flora of the Lesser Antilles T. cantarelloides can lack purplish tints. But the lamellae are described concolorous with the pileus, very narrow, with lamellulae of 4 to 5 length. I am not convinced of applying a species name here without micro details.
