Every day I find about 100 species of mushrooms, take 400 photos

no opportunity to try each “flavor”, or spore print

Since I do not mean to be mycologist

just an amateur who likes to photograph fungus

any help is welcome

Thank you for the assistance which you provide from looking at photos

Spore colour?

Spore print needed!

Clitocybe connata: white

According to the PNW keys:
Clitocybe fasciculata: pale lilac gray
Clitocybe subconnexa: range from dirty pinkish buff or vinaceous buff to dirty pale pinkish buff

Well, I’m not sure I could tell the difference between the latter (both actually belonging to Lepista).

Calocybe species

usually have notched gill attachment and usually the gills are crowded. Clitocybe gill attachment is often decurrent to subdecurrent with the exception of those that are considered as Lepista by many mycologists.

Calocybe has dark granules when you heat the basidia in a solution of acetocarmine…
Other than that, I’d be hard pressed to tell you. Less soft-fleshy, more firm-rubbery?
Less decurrent gills?

Just out of curiosity,

what’s the difference between Clitocybe and Calocybe? If I saw these being cultivated I would say with (false) certainty that they were Calocybe indica.
