then shifted to irina and glaucocana and couldn’t determine in the end. The smell was in between too so no help. But when I now look at my pictures I would also call it glaucocana altho the habitat is a bit unusual. I find glaucocana in the mountains in coniferous forests on calcareous soil, this find is from barely 300 m in deep foliage in mixed rather thermophilous forest alongside a forest road and seems a little bit anthropogenous.
