I have seen this form of shape in young Paxillus sometimes.

What I am not familiar with are those species described by Hahn, namely P. obscurosporus and validus and I think another one. It could be one of those Paxilli but a Paxillus it is. Look at the anastomosing gills and the brownish-reddish hue on them. Also the margin of the cap.

if this is P. involutus

it goes from umbonate when young to convex/centrally depressed in age? i’m having trouble finding other examples of this cap shape in other young P. involutus.
