No specimen available

These specimens seem to fit the description for Inocybe jurana in Mushrooms Demystified and other sources. However, European references seem to indicate more “vinaceous” cap colors. The spores were brown with reddish tones in mass.

I wonder

if there is a chance of a mixed collection here.
The gills of the one on the right look like a Cort (telamonia? with that white stipe)
But the acutely pointed, cracked, radially fibrillose caps look like Inocybe…

Changed to Inocybe sp.

Some of the characteristics do seem to be closer to Inocybe cinnamomea but overall I don’t have enough data to definitively identify these specimens to a particular species. For the time being I’m changing the name from Inocybe jurana to Inocybe sp.
Inocybe cinnamomea rather than I. jurana?

I don’t know where there’s a description of it, but the picture looks like a better match for I. cinnamonea than what I’ve called I. jurana in the past. In any case I. jurana is a deprecated synonym for I. adaequata. Swiss 5 has a picture of the European I. adaequata which actually looks a bit more like your collection than mine, except I don’t see any red staining in yours which I believe is a defining characteristic of the species.
