Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]
Found under jack pine in Zone 15. This small cluster was the only one I found. There were two somewhat-separated pairs, plus a loner a bit away from either pair.
First image is a thumbnail. Next four show the first pair. Next four show the second pair. Next is the loner, with the second pair upturned nearby; they were joined at the base. Next is a gill close-up of the bigger in that second pair. Next is the edge of the cap where I peeled a bit to check for latex; there was none.
Orange caps with minute roughness; pinkish gills; looks like Laccaria cf. laccata to me.

that they sometimes can be difficult to tell apart without microscope, that’s why I didn’t propose a species. But it’s tempting, though :-)
The combination of habitat, scurfy cap and stem, not very bright coloured gills or striate cap, points towards Laccaria proxima.
