You could expect brumale if the head isn’t exceeding 10 mm (usually around 7-8 mm). If larger, I beleive it’s something else.

Anyway, I don’t think the genus Tulostoma is investigated well enough to put a name on this.

from this area have been named Tulostoma beccarianum, which is said to be a larger species than brumale. Is this one smaller than they were?

I’m not able to tell the difference, but just for fun, I had a look at available DNA sequences (one beccarianum, three brumale and a few others).
T. beccarianum was clearly different from the others, but one of the brumale collections was too! That indicates that there are more “hidden” species out there..
