some day, when I am not double-booked, I will make it up to that Fair.
Humboldt State is my Alma Mater, after all, although I was “only” a birder and zoologist, not a shroomer back then.

and David Largent said it was an undescribed Tephrocybe.

with a peaked cap and notched gills, this can’t be Clitocybe.

I did scope it last night….the pilipelis is composed of long hyphal fibers with plenty of clamps. Spores are inamyloid, thin walled and elliptical/tear-drop shaped, 10 × 5 and 8 × 5 from spore drop (pre-dinner quick and dirty scopin’).
No cystidia that I could see.
