G. glabrum?

Why not G. glabrum? Mains says it occurs in the west.

G. umbratile is supposed to have apically curved paraphyses “like a hockey stick” according to Irene Ridge of the Northwest Fungus Group : http://fungus.org.uk/nwfg/earth-tongues.htm

Assuming that the paraphyses do not form a continuous, gelatinous layer on the “stipe”, I’d say this keys out to G. glabrum.
