Growing on the ground near spruce.
These were similar to MO# 153372 with younger and older fruit-bodies.
For the purpose of spore measurements, I separated the 3 younger specimens and the 5 larger ones.
Spores of the 3 younger specimens; ~ 7.9-9.2 X 5.0-6.0 microns.
Spores of the 5 older specimens; ~ 7.9-9.1(10.0) X 5.0-6.0 microns.
They all do appear to be the same species.
In this case, even the younger ones had olive or greenish caps so maybe there is less doubt.
