Id’ed by the members of the Societe de Mycologie de Geneve.

These have been fairly common at the meetings, found on wood and cut off. There was some discussion about these, because they had little odor, but I said they are mostly probably G. marginata, there isn’t much else they could be perhaps. Many kept telling me “mais, pas de farine?”, I guess they really rely on the farinacious odor for these, and Kuhner does mention that feature. I find that the odor is fairly inconsistant.

So, popped a gill under the scope, the spores are roughened, dextrinoid, with a plage, the cystidia are fusiod-ventricose with blunt to sub-capitate ends. The thickened ends on only half, not all the cystidia seems to be a good feature for this species. So, they believed me in the end…
