My side thought also. ROYH seems to think this species is Tricholomopsis. Anybody tell me how to check the diff with scoped images. Might help solve the problem if the tests arent too difficult .

may show a small area of brown spore deposit on the cap. But if so, I would expect to see evidence of spore-darkening on the gills. Also, there appears to be some brown staining on these mushrooms.

This does look like what several online sources label as Flammulaster limulatus, which I gather is a Euro species.

Richard, aside from what may or may not constitute information pointing to a brown spore print, how is it that you are supremely confident in eliminating Tricholomopsis from consideration?

ROYH suggested Tricholomopsis Singer but Gymnopilus P. Karst keeps being suggested in replacement.???? kk/
