what you are saying…

i know you aren’t claiming it to be any of those.

it just doesnt look like a Pholiota to me.

enchplant (i was going to say Richard, but didnt want people to think i was talking to myself) do you have a scope, by any chance?

not not Pholiota

This mushroom is from Argentina – not making a claim that this is actually P. highlandensis. These mushrooms share many characteristics with all the photos linked.

i wouldnt want to put you out. ;)

this is not a Pholiota.

P. highlandensis grows in clusters in burned areas and it’s obviously not even close to the others.
