No idea what it is.The cap was convex to bell-shaped, dry, silky-fibrillose, silvery-tan. The smell was strong and “cheezy”.

In that kind of habitat

you might find another similar Inocybe, but it gets red stains, and has chubbier metuloids (I. whitei).

Thanks, Irene!

We found way more textbook-looking I. geophylla there too, that’s why I was confused by the relatively smooth, umbo-less cap of these three and by their pale gills. The habitat, however, is very similar to that of our other I. geophylla finds – boggy birch forest bordering coniferous taiga, with Sphagnum+Carex tussocks.

Bad nurturing issues then I guess :D
