Recognized by sight: The gills on the most mature specimen do not appear to be changing to a rusty brown color. Also the cap texture makes me suspect Pholiota.

That last part was regarding the very last photo showing the orange spores dropped on the pine needles, sorry for the confusion.

Those are the same

Look at that swollen stipe apex in both collections. Plus the pilei are mirror images. I’ll eat my hat now.

It was not. I found a couple more specimens that I did not collect but notice the orange spores on the pine needles in the last photo. However, honestly I am not entirely sure if that mushroom is the same species.

the small specimens may be misleading (for one side or the other).
they could be rainwashed and fading.
the bigger specimens could have definitely had a veil present.

Hesler says: “at least when young…” when it comes to the veil.

nevermind…

you are right.
i was mistaken.
i did see them on burnt conifer wood…now that i think about it.

but, even Kimbrough lists it as being on hardwood…

at any rate…
i bet this is a Gymnopilus.

hopefully Sean can collect…

where…

Collected P. polychroa from conifer in Gainesville and P. polychroa has sinuate gill attachment.

Had a small penetrans/sapineus-like veil and all of the mushrooms had orange gills, some were just darker than others.

Pholiota polychroa

is a generally southern species which I only saw for the first time last year at NAMA in Arkansas. It is a chameleon species. I don’t know Gymnopilus pholiotoides. I read that it has a membranous veil and orange gills when young.

i have seen Pholiota polychroa 2 times here and both times it has been on hardwood.

the sinuate gills and habitat (pine, at this time of year in central florida) point towards Gymnopilus.
the spore color is off bc of the lighting i believe…
it’s funny that Pholiota has been proposed against G. pholiotoides…

yes.

But they were growing quite abundantly in the area I was at. I could probably find more.
