I find L.ceres in river floodplain on dead vegetation and buried wood. I find it in wood chips at a local state park outside the ladies restroom too. I’m pretty confident that the mushroom in this observation is a different species. This mushroom was growing from leaf debris in a rather mountainous area about 50 yards from a stream. Never seen another like it before.

Is typically found on woodchips in gardens. I can’t find Information regarding its distribution in N. america outside of California.

If it weren’t for that, I’d have happily proposed L. Ceres, as your picture strongly resembles it.

Reminds me of L. ceres too. No staining of any kind though. Could be a Leratiomyces too I guess now that you mentioned.

As I recall

You find Leratiomyces ceres. I have never seen it. This reminds me of it.
