I always thought that this is the Sierras Lyophyllum that we have been seeing commonly forever. And some call it L. decastes, but that can’t be right. Why do we think it is a Tricholoma compared to a Lyophyllum?

I figured someone had a nom prov to apply to this, thanks for the insight. Definitely a very common fungi up here in the spring.
