It seemed fairly fresh, yet very nibbled. No white fluid from broken stem. camera quality is about C grade

can have a yellow(ish) stipe and the same colored cap. Is it known from Japan?

Hope others comment on this.

this area is mixed forest, dominant cedar with much broad leaf deciduous and evergreen trees. It was growing in oak leaf litter on road shoulder. . PIne grows near the coast here, very famous for red and black pine. There are a lot of cedar needles at collection site mixed with leaf litter, which tend to acidify the soil, whereas broad leaf debris mostly neutral and readily decomposing.

but wrong gill colors. Speaking of which, many of the gills are joined. Yellow stipe! Where did you find this? Was it by chance near pine?
