Pluteus cervinus

The uneven cap especially at the center and moreover the white stem with blackish streaks are sufficiant characters to reject the determination as P. salicinus. I’m pretty sure about this being P. cervinus.

If the first picture doesn’t show the right colours, you might need to adjust it to get rid of the brown cap, otherwise it doesn’t fit P. salicinus ;-)

All I know is that I’m just reporting what the others at the Societe Mycology put down for these. They have more experience with the local fungus than I, and they put down the species name here. I think Oscar was the main person to id these, and he’s usually pretty careful and confident. I’m not sure what feature he saw here to make this id.

maybe not salicinus

This collection doesn’t quite match with my concept of P. salicinus – The cap seems too brown when it should be gray, and it appears to be missing the erect squamules near the center of the cap which are characteristic of that species. See Flora Agaricina Neerlandica, Volume 2, Page 34.
