Leratiomyces percevalii vs Stropharia riparia

The Kuo discussion you cite is longest I can find. Unfortunately I don’t have access to the Noordeloos book.
So for now, Leratiomyces percevalii remains the MO consensus for this Observation. But I also suggested Stropharia riparia in case the taxonomy changes.

Michael Kuo discusses it a bit more and would like to call it L.p.

Width of widest stem 0.8 cm.
Found Leratiomyces percevalii in this location at almost the same time in 2013. See Observation 131741.
