Observation 68424: Hygrophorus Fr.
When: 2011-05-28
Collection location: Sintra, Portugal [Click for map]
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Many questions about the classification of this specimen, who produced a spore print white. At first sight could be a Tricholoma or an Hygrophorus (the gills seem to me a bit waxy). However, observing the spores under the microscope (see attached photo), their form and size, in average: Me = 8.1 × 7.2 µm ; Qe = 1.1 (N=24), rule out most of the species in these genera.
I even thought that could be an Entoloma, despite the white spore print, but I have not been successful. So, what is it?
