Spore size required to distinguish

Closely resembles C. plicatilis and should be microscopically distinguished from this latter taxon which is confined to grassland. Does not deliquesce.

It could also be P auricoma

It could also be P auricoma which also looks very similar but I think Leiocephalus is the most likely.
