hohenbuehelia petaloides ?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

hohenbuehelia petaloides ?

A second find from mid October in a spruce plantation.
Cap 6cm diameter and deeply funnel shaped, pale yellow/orange on white/cream decurrent gills. Spore print was white.
The best I can come up with is hohenbuehelia petaloides. Any other possibilities
thanks
Andrew

Hohenbuehelia have cystidia. That species has metuloid gill cystidia which would be quite fun to look at. I'd also check the iodine reaction of the spores.
Clitocybe gibba would be my first thought (Clitocybe lack cystidia)

Thanks Adam, yes I will need to start getting to grips with microscoping features beyond spores, alas no gill specimen here. I was put off Clitocybe gibba on account of how thin the flesh of this specimen was. Thanks for the input and I will add iodine to my growing collection of chemicals.
