The look alike species, Pholiotina aporos, fruits in the spring in Italy.

According to this Spanish mushroom website, Pholiotina aporos, is the species most similar to Pholiotina arrhenii but it fruits in the spring.


and according to this Italian website – http://translate.google.com/...

Pholiotina aporos is “present from March to May” and the mushrooms in these photos were found in mid September.

I don’t think any micro work was done on these because I think this was a field ID. I will try to contact Silvano Pizzardo but he doesn’t speak English and this was found over 2 years ago.
