Recognized by sight: North American resinaceum tends to have a flat cap like this. Often without a stipe, resinaceum can form a stipe in hotter more humid environments and stiped forms get more common the further south you go.

Fruits from the ground often, I see it on the ground far more commonly than on trees. It usually does not form a stipe though, but sometimes it does, seems largely dependent on local conditions, humidity and temp. It will grow a stem readily when artificially cultivated.

resinaceum? maybe

But I can’t find a single photo of resinaceum fruiting from the ground, as these two were (and as lucidum very commonly does). I didn’t notice any resin, but I intend to go back to the place where these guys were seen and I’ll check for resin and more classic-looking resinaceum specimens when I get there.
