Can you take an quick image of your micro notes and keep it in the same folder as your other pictures on the computer for easy reference?

It does look similar to what I understand A. elatella to look like minus the missing annulus, still I think it would be interesting to get more info on this. :)

Micronotes – I just keep notes if it is relevant

This has been checked by another mycologist and it is most likely Agrocybe. What puzzled me is the growth in or near sphagnum in a very humid place at 1000 m a.s.l. where there is Psilocybe, Panaeolus and Hypholoma. I first believed it was a Hypholoma but he wrote it is Agrocybe. The annulus must have been eaten away by a slug if you look close. But I didn’t think of Agrocybe in the first place. Since we do not have an Agrocybe in such a wet location except elatella and it fits also macroscopically quite well I suspect it to be elatella.

You checked the microscopy box, is it possible to share your micro notes if there are any? And what reference did you use? Did these have an annulus? :)
