fruitings that resemble confluens. Seems that the hairs on the stipe are sometimes very short. Given that densely packed very short hairs may be interpreted as “scruffy”, I think confluens is a reasonable proposal here. As Pulk had indicated, the gestalt of this collection strongly suggests confluens.

Thanks for the suggestion, Gall.

The gills on your linked/proposed C. rimutaka don’t appear to be as crowded as the gills in this obs. But at least it’s another name to consider.

Yup, looks just like confluens…

except the stipes are lacking in prominent hairs, which I believe is a defining character for confluens. The night before I collected it, there was a brief heavy shower in the area. So if it was already kinda old, the hairs mat have washed off. Confluens fruit bodies do tend to persist in situ for long periods. So the hairs may have dried up… primed to get washed off.

Actually, I posted this wondering if an alternative to confluens may apply.
