about this being found at a WVMC foray. I have a couple photos, clearly the same mushroom. My photos are dated 6-10-2012.

If it was one of the petite yellow Pluteus, I would not have proposed flavofuligineus.

I believe that this was found during a club foray, and that you ID it.

Phil, do you remember…

the approximate cap/stipe dimensions? I’m pretty sure that falvofuligineus is the only robust yellow-capped Pluteus species found around here. (There are a few small/slender yellow ones.) I found what is likely the same species May 2012, obs 95751. Spring 2012 was a remarkably early start for many types of mushrooms.
