not yellowish brown and stark contrast to the white stipe = D. brunnea.

I have no way of looking at the spores

So I have to go with visual clues.

This spring I have found…

examples of korfii that exhibit the saddle shape like brunnea, and I have found examples of brunnea that exhibit the more random sort of shape expected with korfii. Seems to me like separating these two species can be tricky.

For this obs I think the “pinched seams” along the cap surfaces point toward brunnea.

Spores from the two different species exhibit different ornamentation. Brunnea spores, when mature, show 2-5 small projections arranged around the perimeter of the profile. Korfii spores show two large knoblike projections (apiculi), one at each end of a spore.

I believe G.korfii is not lobed

The one in question here has very prominent lobes – you can see on photos the seam where lobes come together.

still having trouble finding the difference with G korfii
