I noticed that you gave the name Pholiota angustipes a vote of ‘Promising’, does this mean you think there is a strong alternative contender or is there something about this observation that doesn’t match your concept of P. angustipes?

New name for me…

I found a description here:


but I’m still trying to figure out what distinguishes it. It looks like it can be terrestrial. In contrast to Pholiota terrestris doesn’t tend to grow in clusters, is not as scaly, and appears to be yellower. Is that a fair summary?
