Thank you, Irene. In an unpublished key I just used, the laccata group is defined broadly with “fruitbody lacking violet pigment” (thus, including both L. laccata and L. proxima). I wonder what are alternative definitions of the laccata group.

with fine scales, pale gills and scurfy stem point more towards proxima than laccata.
But the spore shape is not exactly what I expected..
