Well, there you go. Not really sure, since you need more details on the various cystidia, but these are most probably P. rugosa then.

I mistakenly put up the psath spores at 1000×. Here’s the Pholiotina. You
should be able to see the details better, and yes, there was a germ pore.

Did you save it?

Um… where is my germ pore? Did you see a germ pore in the spores on this one? I can’t see it in the photos there, and I think P. filaris has a fairly clear germ pore at all times. This is the spring there, right? (Almost?), makes me wonder if this could be an P. aporos, except I don’t think that one has a veil like these… hmmm…
