…looks good as symbiotic partner of the pinkgill because some or all species in sect. Nolanidea (here are the spring mushrooms grouped) of the subgenus Entoloma are generating a special form of mycorrhiza. Just take a look at the german Wikipedia and the cited references:

Entoloma subgen. Entoloma sect. Nolanidea

With Google or another online service you could translate the page in your favorite language. Perhaps this brings you forward.

The article based on the two monographic works from Noordeloos and was updated with the “Pilzkompendium” from Ludwig:

I only came to this species much after the observation. Concerning trees the place is dominated by Quercus sp.(mostly, Q. suber). There are also a lot of shrubs, the most widespread is Arbustus unedo. From the family of Rosaceae there is brambles (Rosus sp.) for sure and maybe some kind of Hawthorn. I don’t remember of any other members of that family that could be present.
I understood by your comment that E. clypeatum is a spring mushroom. But I was not able to find any other alternative. For sure it is different from E. rhodopolium, there also exists at this location and as a much lighter colored, smooth and silky cap.
Thanks, Andreas, for your comment and if you have any suggestion please tell me. This is a genus in which I am particularlly interested and I would like to know more.

grows near the fruiting bodies? In germany we could find the “spring pinkgills” earliest from april.
