No specimen available

Caps 2.5-11 cm wide, break easily, peels in small strips and dry lighter from the margin inward. Margin inrolled, becoming uplifted and wavy. Gills close, adnate with numerous lamellullae, and become crimped in areas. Stipes 4.5- 16.5 cm long x 8-18 mm at apex, cespitose with some stipes appearing connate, flexible, fibrous. Odor fragrant/fruity, taste mild. Flesh thin, white. Spore print white. Found next to Black Walnut and Oak in dense clusters. Last two photos show some spore measurements. As is evident more practice measuring is needed.
This is what I arrived at after measuring 11 spores. (5.3-)5.8-6.4 (-6.8) x (5.1-) 5.3-5.6 (-5.8). Dividing the average total length x the average total width =1.10 E. Subglobose. These spore sizes support L. decastes.
