Ah, ok, so they are dextrinoid.

Ok, so dextrinoid points to Tapinella, good. Plus Tapinella tend be extremely variable…

I considered Phyllotopsis nidulans…

but the lack of odor, yellow color and wrong spores (nidulans has hyaline, sausage-shaped spores) steered me elsewhere. T. panuoides has frequently dextrinoid spores. the gross morphology doesn’t seem quite right to me, but the other features fit. And this was the other side of the country….gotta expect some variation!

Are those spores dextrinoid there? Would you say? Are Tapinella spores dextrinoid? (Wait, what color are they anyway… you are sure these aren’t Phyllotopsis nidulans, the gills do look a little funny for that one here…)
