Specimen available

All microscopic characters here match those of Entoloma brunneolilacinum but these specimens lack the distinct lilac tinge of that species, Horak describes the aged specimens of that species as fading in colour but even the young specimens here lack the lilac tinge, possibly a colour variation of E. brunneolilacinum or an undescribed species.

I figured that:)
I’ll change my vote as it is a good match in macroscopic and microscopic characteristics for that species.

I would not be to concerned if you do not see any lilac colour in your collection as I dont think I have ever. Horak has a bad habbit of naming species from only one collection and sometimes from only one fruiting body. Thus colour range is othen poorly described.
