Are you sure you put the right picture up?

That cluster of mushrooms looks rather Gomphus-like, and doesn’t look like the unidentified Pholiota you handed off to me the other night.

micro added.

I will save one back, and be glad to pass along the bulk of this collection to anyone wanting to have a go at the deep taxo. It will be at UCB tomorrow night.

those are super cool. I hope someone takes a look at the basidia, cystidia, subhymenium, hymenophoral trama, pileipellis and stiptipellis!

The pics are really nice too.

It keys out to Pholiota ferruginea group in the PNW key. Nice mushroom. I don’t recognize it.
