A lot of species in the nivea group

But no other looks exactly like nivea – they have different colours, size, shape, behaviour and habitat. C. pseudonivea has a pink cap..
Of course there is always a risk that you stumble on a look-alike, and microscopy would have been nice, and eventually lead to an “I’d call it that” insead of “Promising”. C. nivea is one of the few that is really easy to recognize in the microscope, by the big and rounded spores.

couldn’t it be

pseudonivea too? or any other close to this group? I wouldn’t dare to tell without microscopy…
