Would it be weird…

To suggest Calocybe? Mostly since it reminds me of Calocybe ionides in many ways.

I too saw the twisted striate stipe and thought Entolomataceae, but the complete absence of pink deposit on the gill faces makes me believe this is white-spored. I tried looking over Wikipedia’s list of Tricholomataceae genera, but encountered more names I’d never heard of than I knew what to do with.

I think this will stay a mystery until re-collected and scoped. Maybe a look through my 4th ed. of Singer’s Agaricales in Modern Taxonomy will prove useful…

gills are telling us something…, I wanted this to be an entoloma, mainly due to the serrated gills in photo 5, but that seems a bit of a stretch. Nothing pink. It does have the general appearance of Melanoleuca, but that is not often cespitose. Tricholoma will take anything!

I went back to the spot in 2011, 2012 and 2013 to try to make a collection, but it wasn’t there.

Spore color?
