145076 looks good for L. quietus. The other obs. less so but it may just be the lighting. It is a common species here under oaks. Less common with conifers is the similar L.mutabilis.

Interesting to see someone else observe this species. No one’s ever been able to ID it one way or the other for me and I’ve just come to my own conclusion as to what it is. I’ll link you my observations here. How do you feel it compares?


It grows prolifically here under Oak trees in a particular area so i feel like it’s worth knowing for sure whether I’m right or wrong. From what i can tell, the species i have has darker gills. Maybe it will just have to be one of species that i will never know without microscopy.
