I’m confused… what reference(s) did you use? I get zero google hits for either “Dichotomous Key of Common North American Fungi” or “Dichotomous Key of Common Neotropical Fungi,” and the former (provided it exists) would be largely useless in the Bolivian Amazon. What’s more, I most certainly did not ID this as M. acicula!
