It really

seems a Rhodocybe. Initially I thought it was a Clitocybe (after that Clitopilus but no one fitted) but some features make me doubt. Always dry, the margin inrolled, smell indistinct, buff pink gills, it could be really a Rhodocybe, thanks :)

I don’t know R. gemina, I didn’t see any Rhodocybe at all until now, but I saw R. fallax and it reminds me these.

I am going to upload some pictures took on other day, just to show the others I think that are the same, then perhaps I will remove the photos, or not.

I agree

that it looks like Rhodocybe gemina. It has one particular feature – some of the gills are often skewed (is that the right word..?)

stupid mushroom is kidding with me… I can’t achieve a spore print. I’ve tried in many other observations too (I believe they refer to the same specie) and never got a spore print (with young, middle aged or any specimens). That’s why I posted “appear” to be white.
Has this happened with anyone before? I would like some advices if so, thanks.

Thought this might be Tricholomatiaceae family as it includes,

according to Wikipedia, white-, yellow-, or pink-spored genera in the Agaricales not already classified as belonging to the Amanitaceae, Lepiotaceae, Hygrophoraceae, Pluteaceae, or Entolomataceae. But, if the spores are pinkish instead of whitish (you say appear white), how about Rhodocybe? I’ve never seen them but the description seems to fit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhodocybe_gemina and obs 26048.
Just a guess :}
