Too large for Alboleptonia.

This one is too large for Alboleptonia. One common larger white Entoloma is Entoloma speculum and not uncommon in our area (or what looks like it). Mind you, of course that this is a European name, so use it “wisely”… We have some whitish forms in the Rhodopolium group, so these require very careful id against a good literature.

Since we in Calfiornia are sufficiently wise now to know that in most cases strict names from Europe cannot be applied, but lacking good such on our end, it may be a nice feature to be able to specify “affinity” on this site. Or group., section, stirps, whatever.. This one would probably fit in that category.

And also – identifying Entoloma, I’d be strongly discouraged unless one has studied in detail Largent’s monograph, as well as Noordeloos’ work.

OK, my mistake

No problems with the later pictures.
But I still think the genus Alboleptonia should be replaced with Entoloma,
check this study:

The first few pics are rather large specimens. It had an interesting flat stem.

…find Alan, do you have any micrographs of the spores, I find the shape of the spores from the Entolomataceae to be really interesting!
