But you said P. nanus is not blue..?? The colours are not off in the photos. The stipe was blue/grey when I found it.

The pileipellis of this specimen has the look of a celluloderm – see the way it cracks open? It is composed of clavate to sphaeropedunculate (round objects on stalks) cells. – this is one of the characters for Pluteus nanus.

Pluteus salicinus on the other hand, has, just like P. cervinus, a pileipellis made up of radiating long hyphae (a cutis, like my straight hair).
