This specimen was found in subtropical forest in Bosque Estatal de Carite near the trail to Charco Azul in Puerto Rico’s Sierra de Cayey mountain range. A single basidiomata was growing from soil in leaf litter. The distinctive cruciform/stellate spores averaged 10-12 microns from point to point.

I was initially very surprised when I looked through the microscope. However doing a bit of reading I found these spores are typical of certain Entolomas with “cruciform” spores as defined by Noordeloos. I will eventually have DNA work done and we’ll know for sure.
I could only get a very faint spore print, but it seems more salmon color than brown.
that this fruitbody is an Entoloma species? Did you made a spore print and if yes what color do you’ve detected? Perhaps this could be an Inocybe species?
