These were growing on woody debris either alone or in small clusters of 2-3.
Caps up to 7.5 cm across. The larger ones seemed to develop an unbo probably because the caps are very thin and limp and tend to sag when large.
No signs of a veil.
The stems were also fragile and hollow.
Spore print was purplish brown.
Spores ~ 6.8-11.0 X 4.0-5.9 microns. mostly elongate with a large germ pore.
Q(ave) = 1.81.
Did not see any pleurocystidia.
Cleilocystidia not abundant, narrowly utriform with subclavate apexes and ~ 42-55 X 11-14 microns.

Also, I was in a hurry and the number in my last comment was the Q(range).
I did do two sets of measurements on these as I wasn’t sure each collection pictured were identical species. They were growing several meters apart. In total I made 29 measurments(!4 + 15).
In terms of Q(ave), one was 1.79 and Q(range) was 1.65-2.04 and the other was Q(ave) = 1.83; Q(range) = 1.64-2.04.
I see the spore range & Q average only.
The Q(range) = 1.64-2.04.
I did quickly scan the Candolleana section but nothing appeared to match(?).
I think this should end up in subgenus Candolleana section Candolleana, or in other words the P. candolleana group, its kind of hard to key out from just photos. I’ll try more later.
