Having had no experience with the European one – how does the cap shape differ? It’s fairly variable here.

Another question I have is about the provenance of the silvery-white chevrons of tissue so common on the stipe of the fruitbodies of this species. Is it weird proto-veil? Where does it come from?

A few photos of the european form seem to also show it.

Also, why do they both have rose-pink color forms?

And why do Entoloma and Hygrocybe in general favor nutrient-poor grassland in Europe, but Redwood and Cypress forest in CA? Is it just a matter of competitor-free habitat?

is a good idea for these american ones. I can’t find any DNA sequences that are very close to the european. And they don’t look exactly the same either. The shape of the cap is different.
