I would write Rhodocybe without “sp.” if I am sorting the specimens by genus. If I have worked on the specimen and did not get any trustworthy result, I would add “sp.” That would indicate that I tried and I gave up! The genus name alone tells you that I have not tried to identify it. Can you see the difference?

because adding “sp.” adds no new information.

We would like to change the name to “Rhodocybe sp.”, but Mushroom Observer Rules Of Naming do not allow “sp.”in the MO Observation names. Why not? Adolf

Could be Rhodocybe

but hardly hirneola. It’s pale greyish all over, cap non-striate and almost white with a metallic sheen.

Arrhenia obscurata does not have cheilocystidia. Cf. MO # 65167

looks more like an Arrhenia. Maybe A. obscurata?
