It would be small for A. sylvicola, and the above-view of the cap isn’t typical. Spore measurements are useful in this group; if you develop any data, please share it. If you have access to DNA sequencing, I’d say it’s a candidate. It would be cool if it might be the long-lost A. cretacellus, described from Ithaca, NY.

Is the top photo from the same patch?
