The macroscopic form is similar to E. haastii.
I agree, NZ Entoloma species are not easy to identify to species level but I find the genus very interesting and am considering buying Egons new book although it is quite expensive!
The diversity of the Entolomataceae in my backyard is extremely diverse and every year I seem to find new ones, I was excited to find Richoniella pumila last November which is an interesting genus with one species and one form.
This reminds me of the brown form of Entoloma haastii? but our local Entoloma are an evil group to name to species level. Even though E. Horek has published a new book on this group it does not seem to help. There still seems to be undescribed species about!!!!!
The specimen was almost completely rotted away but I collected a small piece, the spores are angled and typical of those in the Entoloma genus, getting it down to species is a lot harder with these obscure New Zealand Entoloma species, maybe one day I’ll do a more in depth microscopy study and try to key it out!
Did you consider Laccaria?
