the color of the pileus is tawny fading to yellow on the margin.
the pileus of G. penetrans is usually a golden yellow color all over.
also, the pileus appears to be minutely floccose-squamulose as oppsed to the glabrous pileus of G. penetrans.
a hand lens or microscope at low magnification should make this easier to see.
the stipe also appears to be bruising a brownish color where handled.
the pileus of G. penetrans usually expands to flat and often becomes wavy.
the pileus we see here is hemispheric to plano-convex.

hope that helps some.

Richard, are there some traits…

that lead you away from G. penetrans and/or toward sapineus?
