Jeeze. That Galerina monograph was a lot to chew through.
All features match tibiicystis. Too bad I didn’t know about the tibiiform cystidia before now. Would’ve saved a couple hours.

Galerina

Has the pileipellis made up of a cutis, with capitate-subcapitate/sublecythiform cystidia. Similar cystidia can be found in Conocybe though the latter has hymeniform/cellular type pileipellis. Your observation seems to fit Galerina

I agree. Not Tubaria furfuracea. Cap is not close to cinnamon and it’s not hygrophanous.

Oluna and/or Adolf, please do suggest what you think. Take a look at the cystidia first though.

I could see how it could be a Galerina

and I know your observations are very thorough so I trust your opinions. It does look nearly identical to G. vittiformis even a lot of the microscopic features. The cystidia just doesn’t seem to match vittiformis.

Which features make up your opinion for Galerina?

Try Galerina instead.
