Habitat and general appearance make me lean towards tricholoma. I'm not at all convinced by the accuracy of the spore print (inconsistent with gill color, print looks more like a moisture stain with pigments from the pileus) and I would like to see a shot of the gills, particularly gill attachment.

I'd say Tricholoma or perhaps Lyophyllum sp. could be close, yet as Koraks
says the spore print looks incomplete, and in any way you should try to upload
the pictures separately and in larger scale, if possible. Welcome to the Shroomery... :smile:

Yeah, lyophyllum sounds like a good candidate too. We have already narrowed it down to a couple of thousand species :thumbup: :wink:

Here is a shot of the gills. Still working on trying to make a decent spore print. Edges are curled under, so I've used a blade to cut away the blockers.
