you have of Megacollybia platyphylla works fine for rodmani too, I think.
M. platyphylla was divided into several “geographical” species after DNA analysis. You’ll find explanations in this article:

I never heard about this specie before can someone make a short description of M rodmanii? and how it different from M platyphylla?

Is 20-30cm is to big for these species?

I don’t take the base of the steam nor take a spore print I would to this next year.

Interesting marks on the cap…

Did you get a photo of the stem, especially the base of the stem?
