In that kind of habitat

you might find another similar Inocybe, but it gets red stains, and has chubbier metuloids (I. whitei).

Thanks, Irene!

We found way more textbook-looking I. geophylla there too, that’s why I was confused by the relatively smooth, umbo-less cap of these three and by their pale gills. The habitat, however, is very similar to that of our other I. geophylla finds – boggy birch forest bordering coniferous taiga, with Sphagnum+Carex tussocks.

Bad nurturing issues then I guess :D
