prompted me to do a little more study. These ubiquitous little creps are sometimes difficult for me to differentiate without any microscopy. Think I am happy with C. applanatus (very common here and the hint of brown spores)as it stands. As always, I truly appreciate your looking at my observation and taking time to consider the alternatives.

reports C. alabamensis from Missouri. Quite similar to C. applanatus. Brown spore dust on the lower hanging fruit body is good evidence to support Crepidotus.
