is what this species is called in most books and is considered a good species by Index Fungorum and synonymous with Kuehneromyces rostratus. The description in Smith & Hesler is spot on. But The Quebec site has it as K. marginellus which is now Pholiota marginella. I have been unable to relocate the publication where this was put in synonymy with Pholiota veris.
http://www.mycoquebec.org/... marginellus / Pholiote marginée&tag=Kuehneromyces marginellus&gro=35. It is a very common late spring species in broadleaf woods in Ohio and surrounding states.
