Interesting suggestion, Dave

The cap of the “baby” is kinda dark for canescens and, as you noted, the cap of the mature fb is clearly virgate, but the warts are evocative of a sect. Lepidella. Maybe microscopy can help here with sectional placement… I agree that A. canescens is a weird lepidella in the way it sometimes presents itself – somewhat of a Validae wannabe. :-)

Any chance…

canescens may make sense here? Cap surface seems kinda radially streaky for a Lepidella. But, canescens seems to be a bit of an oddball Lepidella.

Off the top of my head,…
