These were growing in a carpet of deep and wet moss, surrounded by various conifers, such as cedar & hemlock, and perhaps birch.
Macroscopic examination led to the FHKM/N_TV codes. A process of elimination from the list of “suspects” led to R. adusta as the best match. However, the observed spore profile doesn’t fit adusta — as viewed though a scope, the spores were decorated with widely-spaced warts and isolated fine-lined connectors contiguously running through up to 4 warts, which is nowhere close to “a complete reticulum” mentioned in the book.
A few more facts not visible from the pix:
1) The cuticle peeled just a few millimeters from the margin
2) Injured flesh slowly stained pinkish, then grayish/fuscous and finally dark brown
3) The cap context definitely tasted mild.
