I am glad I did well with an Entoloma it’s not something I am used to :)

E. sericeum.

After a while I think this is not E. papillatum because the fruibodies showed grey-brownish instead of “warm” brown colors and the stipe is not polished or almost so.

Hmm, okay,

I would need to check the find again but then I am no expert on gilled ones so I do not know if I could ID it from exsiccata. What are the main differences between them two?

It’s really difficult

…to determine the most pinkgills without any microscopic details so my “believe” is more a “could be”. Because E. sericeum could also have caps with papilla as shown at your pics – E. papillatum is only a possibility. E. sericeum f. nolaniforme isn’t present in my mind at time, sorry.

Thank you,

I was not content with my ID nevertheless. Entoloma is so complicated I usually even refrain from collecting them although there are so many attractive species.
But what about E. sericeum fo. nolaniforme? Could that possibility ruled out once and for all?

On the first look I believe to see E. papillatum.
