Observation 221457: Agaricales sensu lato

On wood, probably conifer. Caps 2 cm across, convex in both specimens.

In dried material, gills difficult to break, some appear serrated.

Basidia 4-spored ~20+3 x 5. Some look 2-spored. Spores 4.5-5.5 × 3-4, amyloid and smooth. Cheilocystidia scarce, ~30 × 5. (All microscopy using MLZ.)

I considered “lentinoid” genera; only Lentinellus seems to have amyloid spores about this size, but not smooth.

looks similar in photos, but it has inamyloid spores; MatchMaker quotes three sources who say this. But in this observation, there is no doubt that the spores are amyloid.
