no distinct odot, sorry I dont have a digital set up with my scope. but they were non-descript relatively.

to my eye at least that staining seems more orange than pink.

micro would help.

dont think Inocybe corydalina is a fit

Alan, why is this I. corydalina? The description in the swiss books says blue green and grey in center of pileus. None of that. And there is no smell, I. corydalina is supposed to be flowery.

smooth, elliptical brown-yellow, small, thick walled

I guess it could be an inocybe, i didnt realize they can be smooth spored

It seems very darkspored for a Cortinarius, and the tiny scales on top of the stem makes it look more like a Hebeloma (but too dark spores for that too).

Stropharia, or maybe even Psathyrella?
Please, dust off the scope and show us spores!

cap color

there is a pink blush to the cap center but no staining. I guess I should dust offf the scope and check the spores.
