I’ll try to make a return visit and see if I can collect some. Thanks.

an important obs. If this is as abundant as it appears to be in your photos, you should be able to extract one or two complete specimens without damaging the mostly underground portion of this sporocarp’s mycorrhizae.

I urge you to do so, and send to Lorelei Norvell. If excavation (remember a shovel!) proves I’m wrong in calling this P. phaeogaleroides, you should find the long (to extremely long) pseudostipe present, it may be up to 205 mm long x 2mm thick, (or even more than) 8 inches long! Any excavation should be at the edge of any fruiting you find.

unlikely, as pileus not “convex-umbonate with incurved margin and edge when young” – Phaeocollybia of Pacific Northwest North America.

P. phaeogaleroides similarly unlikely, as neither cap nor stipe mycenoid. Additionally, P. phaeogaleroides has an extremely long underground pseudorhiza, often slender, which can be over 20 cm long.
