Black bits might be a more nuanced and accurate

term. I don’t have a good photo and did not examine them closely. You can see them just to the right of the 2nd photo on the stem base. Also the last photo that I added. A student of mine showed photos of sclerotia on G. junious /spectabilis. I had never heard of it either, but the photos were quite convincing. They did not look as suspect as my black bits.

I’ve never heard of either genus having sclerotia.

You are right!

Cap has no flavor when two days old and partially dried, not remotely bitter. Character of fruit bodies spread about on ground in chips and grass more characteristic of Pholiota than Gymnopilus. One possible contradiction: small black scerotia in mycelium more likely on Gymnopilus I think.

I would expect G. to be bitter, P. maybe less so. Is that correct?

Did you taste these?

They really remind me of Pholiota.
