Uh, what color spore deposit would a Pouzarella drop? Sorry if that seems like a dumb question, but I can’t find any info on that thus far. Would it be pink or salmon colored? Thanks.

For comparison, see here.

The medium-sized stipe ornamentation (stronger than most Inocybe, weaker than I. tahquamenonensis) and dark colors were the reasons I voted against Inocybe sp.. I don’t think many others than I. tahquamenonensis have those characters, and I don’t think it’s that one for the reasons above.

Probably the same or in the group with this guy:
