something about Inocybe and some, like I. rimosa the one pulk cited, does not have pleurocystidia and the cheilocystidia are more alike to pseudoparaphyes than to the cystidia existing in other Inocybe species. Then I looked for websites and found this one:
Therefore, I have to apologize pulk, since he has right from the beginning.
Today I found at te same place other specimens, that are yet more likely I. rimosa (to be posted soon).

what about Cystidia?

Do you know any Inocybe like this?
The morfology of the spores are similar, but not the same as I. geophylla, the species of Inocybe with more look alike spores.

There are several Inocybe spp.

with spores like this. I agree with Pulk in this instance.

Though Inocybe can have spores of 4 different forms …

none is similar to the spores of this specimen and these agree with those of most species in Agrocybe.
“Mixed up collections” is impossible since there are not enough mushroom yet at this time. That day, mushroms with gills I collected only two, the other was a Russula.

I’m unfamiliar with micro traits

I’d like to learn how this microscopy indicates Agrocybe, or eliminates Inocybe. Regardless, if it does, then you have mixed up collections. Again, the photos are 100% Inocybe. Agrocybe doesn’t have caps, gills, or stems like this.

Agrocybe, not Inocybe,

Look at the microscopy!

Inocybe, not Agrocybe

Look at the radially fibrillose cap, the uneven yellow-brown gills, and the scaly upper stipe. This is 100% Inocybe…
