Observation 31874: Inocybe citrifolia Matheny nom. prov.

Initially, I thought these may be a Dermocybe species. Closer inspection did indicate Inocybe in spite of the yellowish gills and orangy colors on the cap.
They were growing near Douglas Fir and were quite plentiful.
The spores were brown and approx. 10.5-11.4 X 6.0-6.3 microns.
The odor was not strong.
I’ve included a couple of photos of the cheilocystidia.
Inocybe citrifolia may be a candidate but these seem to have too much reddish coloration in the cap.

Seems fine to me – these spores are a touch wider, but I don’t think variation should be of concern because after all, it is currently “known only from the type locality”. Mykoweb’s description mentions orange-brown in the cap color description – seems to fit these just fine.
