Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found under spruce and fir.

No clear odor.

Adding some micro-details:

The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in Meltzer’s. The cheilocystidia are broadly lageniform. No pleurocystidia were obs. The basidia are 4-spored.

The second micro-shot is of the cap surface at 400x in Meltzer’s. The cap surface is a trichoderm of multi-septate elements.

The third micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in Meltzer’s. The spores are ellipsoid, smooth, dextrinoid, with a super-hilar depression. The apr. size is 11 × 5 um.

Putting this together, with Funga Nordica at least, I get Lepiota subgracilis.
