After researches I tend to agree with the determination and will deposit my find under this name after microscopic investigation … I have found L.fraterna in Austria but never thought it to be the same as this one in Down Under!

I don’t know Australian Laccaria, however I do know of an Australian introduction to California which resembles this… Could it be L. fraterna?
