Differences L. clypeolaria and L. magnispora

The easiest way to tell the two apart is by their spores: with rounded back in L. clypeolaria, with straight back (but with a belly) in L. magnispora.
In the absence of information on that character, we turn to the pileus: pale and without a dark centre in L. clypeolaria, but with that characteristic ‘eye’ in L. magnispora.

Why not L. magnispora?
