squamosa?

Ref. latest ID above: I have been thinking about C. squamosa with regard to the existing posting of five photographs, and wouldn't completely rule it out, and certainly the basal squamules would fit. But the podetial structure/squamules do not seem possible, even given that C. squamosa is another extremely variable species.

Basically, however, I think discussion should be continued in the original observation, rather than in this duplicate.

C. chlorophaea?

Looking at the original observation again, I now think it is something in the C. chlorophaea group. On the other hand, the basal squamules do look a LOT like C. squamosa.
