That’s a really cool obs of the burn-site Pholiota. I’m not very familiar with these types. I recall running across some old specimens in a burn site in Montana a few years back. Looks to me like you, Eric, and Rocky have teamed up to provide a very informative observation.

I think some macro difference between many Pholiotas and Kuehneromyces types (P. veris is also called K. rostratus) are the occasional striations and the hygrophanous nature of the cap (Kuehneromyces).

What do you think of this:

typically occurs on decomposed wood. But it may appear terrestrial if it’s growing on buried wood. I have also seen it on woody debris and areas with woodchips. This collection found on a highly decomposed stump.

Pholiota on ground – right?

I expect to see Pholiota on wood at least that is what I have seen.
