Lamellae context…

On the micro-shots, I can’t tell if the lamellae context is sub-regular or interwoven? Do you have a notes on the scope work to include in the obs? It would be good to know if this should go into Camarophyllus or not.

Not C. gruberi

I’m familiar with Cantharocybe gruberi, and I’m sure this isn’t it. The gills and stem are very different than those of C. gruberi which has a thick, chunky stem and anastomosing gills where they meet the stem. Also C. gruberi is not viscid on either the cap or stem. This looks very much like Hygrophorus and is likely hypothejus.

Looks like…

It is like a funny H. hypothejus, with wrong colors… But it seems to have the universal glutenous veil just like that one. It looks like there is a glutenous veil ring on the upper stipe.
