is an old observation, at that time I didn’t make a spore print, so I can do only macro comparison.

Pholiota has smooth spores, Gymnopilus has verruculose ones.

“Smooth or verruculose spores” ?

Smooth or verruculose spores if you suspect Gymnopilus. A simple spore print would probably suffice as Pholiota spores are typically much darker than Gymnopilus.

Gymnopilus is also possible? Let me upload first the photo of the cap. It is corrected on luminosity as it was very dark, so colours seems very intense, but we can see the texture and form.

You can compare it

To the American Pholiota terrestris. Perhaps there is a similar species in Europe.

veil remnants on cap are from partial veil? Brown stem base remnants really resembles a cortinariaceae, and as gills are not rusty brown and cap flesh yellow could be a Pholiota yes, but I don’t know which.

Dimensions: cap diameter ±5cm Stem ±3-4 cm. Habitat, side road on a small village. Apparently on soil, didn’t see neither anything attached nor tree nearby.

Could you

Describe the dimensions, substrate and habitat? Personally, I don’t believe a majority of Pholiota lower taxa proposals that lack microscopy.

I don’t

find any matching Pholiota for this, could somebody help?
