linked within the previous comment, I’m wondering even more about these two species names. I have gone back and forth on my own similar observations.

I find them difficult to distinguish as well, but this mushroom is different from the mushroom that I have previously called F. erinaceella (but that mushroom may indeed be P. granulosa): http://mushroomobserver.org/96828?q=V3eP
