C. fimbriatus has a distinct light-brown to tan color, this one is mostly all white. Need a photo of the spores at least here, then you can get somewhere.

Does it have clamps?

How about the spores? Cystidia could help too. I recently tried to ID a similar looking Crepidotus growing in Richardson grove off redwood, but I was unable to find a single spore… It feels pretty futile to identify these without spores.

C. fimbriatus…

is a montaine sp. that follows snowmelt. Plus, it has a brown cap covered in white hairs that are easily removed by rain.

What characters led you to call this coastal sp. fimbriatus?
