In the photo were sopping wet. The orange cortinas and spore mass on drier surfaces were obvious in person. Also, the anise odor, bulbous stipe bases and yellowish basal mycelium all point at Gymnopilus as well. If you feel it is appropriate to label this as Pholiota for now, that is fine. I will eventually update the observation with microscopy and, who knows, it might turn out to be a Pholiota.
the pileus is too smooth.
spore drop is wicked brown on the stipe…
