I would write Rhodocybe without “sp.” if I am sorting the specimens by genus. If I have worked on the specimen and did not get any trustworthy result, I would add “sp.” That would indicate that I tried and I gave up! The genus name alone tells you that I have not tried to identify it. Can you see the difference?
because adding “sp.” adds no new information.
but hardly hirneola. It’s pale greyish all over, cap non-striate and almost white with a metallic sheen.
