calling these geophylla was a stretch…

too squat, too fluffy on the cap. But yeah, it’s a white Inocybe…

Where is there a description for I. insinuata?

I’d buy it…

I’ll buy that, and they are probably different from the I. “geophylla” found on the coast.

We called it…

We called these collections from this area I. geophylla for years. I was unconvinced, so I sent a 2010 collection to Brandon Matheny. He said to call it I. cf. insinuata Kauffman for now. (The type is from Berkeley, under pine). Brandon also says the true I. geophylla is unknown from California.

Yeah, probably…

Well, I didn’t this time, but they have in the past a few times with these guys in the area. And at those times the microscopic features more of less agreed with the descriptions.

But people do say that there is probably a different species here, but it isn’t different enough to say one way or the other yet.

I have some doubts

Doesn’t it look too sturdy for geophylla? Did you do microscopy on spores and cystidia?
