These were interesting in that they were whitish and the color of the cortina was rater goldish, at least initially.
Caps were up to about 5.8 cm across with Inocybe-like scales/fibers.
The gills were close to subdistant and fairly deeply notched.
The spores were aprox. 9.0-10.1 X 6.5-7.3 microns and moderately rough.
KOH reactions gave sl darkening reactions but nothing dramatic. On the cap it appeared somewhat grayish.
Not even sure what subgenus to go with but as the cap seemed dry, Sericeocybe seems like a starting point.

by my not so sensitive nose.
I will check this time… and let someone else bet.
Very interesting collection, reminds me strongly of Sericeocybe and derivatives, but will not comment further cause I have a couple of similar collections and I am rather split about them. Did it have an odor?
Nice photos, nice spore shot.
