They appear to be two different species.
Obs. labelled P. brumalis on this site vary regarding the hairy margin and pore size. My obs. http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/274508?obs=114167&q=vZ26 shows a hairy cap edge. I do not know if we have P. ciliatus here.

Well

Or at least what is called P. brumalis in Eastern North America. My references including European ones do not mention a hairy margin which is a feature of P. aurcularius. P. ciliatus appears to be very similar but I am not familiar with it.

Not sure

about brumalis. The pores are tiny, and I miss the hairy margin.
