I did not get to see these mature – slugs probably.

I few days later there were some new ones at the bottom of the same log. The gills looked unmistakably to be H. fasiculare. I brought them home to see if they were fluorescent under UV light, but alas, my UV light was hiding. But I am convinced they are H. fasiculare anyway.

The partial veil for P. alnicola…

is fleeting. Specimens showing virtually no evidence of the veil are typical. Usually, a given cluster includes a few unexpanded caps where the veil is seen. But I would not rule out the possibility that no veil is observable for an entire fruiting.

Hypholoma vs. Pholiota

Pholiota is an interesting idea. Spore color would tell us immediately, but I would expect a bit more of veil for Pholoiota and the cap color and shape look more like Hypholoma to me. For example, observation 161662 and observation 82558.
