Yeah, but…

The problem is there are a lot Galerinas with spores that have about the same size, apr. 8-10 × 5-7 um, that covers many of the species. The spores at least are appropriately roughened, and a few show a clear plage in the photo. But you need to see the cystidia, on both the gill edge and face really. The top of caps aren’t bad either, in that they aren’t that striate, G. autumnalis will only be translucently striate at the margin.
