This is not O. onotica

O. onotica is more yellowish, often with pinkish tones on the hymenium and also reddish dots. The spore length is between 11-13 µm. Here, on micropictures, the length seems to be less than 10 µm!
If this spore size is confirmed, the macroscopic characters reminds me O. angusta or O. nannfeldtii, two taxa described from Northern Europe.
