These were brushed off by others as G. marginata, but I’m not sure… I’ll try to put these under the scope later to check. The hygrophanous change is a little strange here, the cap is changing from a ring around the disc outward, where for most Galerina they change from the center out.
Adding some micro-details from awhile back…
The first micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in Meltzer’s. The fusiod-ventricose cheilocystidia with blunt apecies can been seen here. Also obs. was a lack of pleurocystidia and the spores were dextrinoid.
The second micro-shot is of the spores from the stipe apex at 1000x in KOH. The spores here are ellipsoid and roughened with a plage. The spores are apr. 10 um long.
Putting this together you get Galerina uncialis, which looks a lot like a Galerina marginata, even under the microscope, but is lacking the pleurocystidia.
