It is usually a fall species in my experience but MO observations have it throughout the season. I have corrected the date. I have never found it in June!
This link was in the Adirondacks in Aug. 2011. http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/176418?q=1nfin&size=full_size

It is small and easily overlooked.

Cool mushroom, Walt.

Is it typically a late-spring/early-summer mushroom in NE NA?

appears to be from Alaska to the Gulf Coast. Jean Lodge would like collections. Yes another odd member of Hygrophoraceae.

love these!

I didn’t realize that they were also an eastern sp.
