Specimen available

These have some characteristics of a Lepiota or at least those species that only have a scruffy stipe rather than a distinct ring. They were firmer than the usual fairly fragile Lep. The caps were fibrillose , appendiculate, and up to 3.9cm broad. The spores were white and non-amyloid, approx. 3.5-4.- X 4.0- 5.5 microns and many looked almost globose.

Gill color and attachment does point towards trich. Overall shape, and veil-related features, more resembles Cystoderma and similar to me.

The spore print won’t help here — whitish for both.

Gill attachment and cap markings have me leaning toward Tricholoma though.

Tricholoma sounds fine

It looks like a tiny version of Tricholoma vaccinum. The spores are shaped like grape seeds, but should be slightly larger in vaccinum.

Try Tricholoma?

These might be yet another brown Tricholoma?
