Lepista tarda

The caps of L. tarda are inverted upwards, but we can’t see this trait in this mushroom. On the contrary, the cap margins are curled inwards, so I doubt that these are L. tarda. I don’t have the spore print but if I find the same mushroom, I’ll get a spore print and upload its photograph here.

are unusual for Lepista, and this trait appears to be consistent for the mushrooms in this collection. Knowing spore print color would probably help here.

Objection to Lepista sp.

I don’t think this is a Lepista species because the flesh is not as thick as it should be and there’s a hollow in the stem, which you can’t see in any Lepista species.
