I actually only own a cheap magnifying glass. After two hours of scrutiny, I have to retract the over confident statement that I made about crenulate gills. Sorry.

Rocky, I think the genus may have changed for this mushroom.

Were most definitely crenulate under a hand lens.

May or may not be

The same as I’ve collected here. http://mushroomobserver.org/96828?q=IvN2
You can use a hand lense to check for crenulate gill edges.
