of H. albocrenulata have featured groups of three or fewer mushrooms. So the large (cepitose) cluster seen here does point away from this species proposal.

On my computer monitor, the cap color on the ones seen here looks to be on the brown side. P. aurivella is generally yellow-orange to caramel colored on the caps. This was my basis for the “could be” proposal.

Occurs singly or in pairs, maybe 3 but not in a large group.

Cap color, habit

Interesting suggestion. But:
The caps in the photos seem to me to run from yellow/orange to brown, while Hemistropharia albocrenulata is supposed to have a “dark brown” cap. Mycotaxon 102: 239."http://www.cybertruffle.org.uk/...
Also, Gibson, Matchmaker: Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest, Version 2.1.1 (Apr. 2014) (application, downloadable at http://www.svims.ca/council/matchmaker.htm), citing Arora and Smith, says that Hemistropharia albocrenulata occurs singly or in two or threes.

What do you think?
