Maybe they were both brown when fresher, all these Clitocybe look so much alike, macro and microscopically…
Edit: Or maybe Walt’s observation is environmental and your’s is hygrophanous?
on the photos in Walt’s collection (153532), thin brown marginal zones are seen on the caps. Although the ones seen here in my obs show a significantly wider brown marginal zone, my interpretation is that this represents a similarity.
My specimens have retained the dark margins now that they are dehydrated.
At this time of year, while the ground is still warm enough for terrestrial mushrooms to fruit but nighttime temps often drop below freezing, weather-induced macro-variations are common. I suspect that the appearance of striations on the cap margins seen in this obs is the result of the mushrooms freezing along the margins while in a brown/moist state, with the result being that the brown color and marginal lines were locked in by the freezing. The lines do not extend into the white parts of the caps.
But the marginal striations are interesting. Maybe a result of weather conditions?
This is a common late season species under conifers. It would be nice to get a name.
