of what I’ve been calling “compressipes”, and there are three sites where I have collected this type. Habitat is different from the type seen here and some of the other whitish clitocybes we’ve been comparing… with the compressed stipe type seeming to favor open areas and/or poor soil in semi-grassy areas.

One reason why I brought up the point about the compressed stipe is that I have also seen it on a few specimens of what I’ve been calling “dealbata subsp. sudorifica.” So I’m wondering… Is the compressed stipe something that occurs across a variety of clitocybe species? Or maybe these small late-occurring whitish clitocybes are all representative of one species or species cluster, with macro-variations due to season, weather, and/or habitat?

on account of the compression running down the fully developed stipe. In my collections of this type, the larger stipes were consistently compressed, but the young ones had thin cylindrical stipes.
