I had previously put this in with another observation thinking it was a Gymnopilus species because it has a scaly cap and tasted bitter.
But I was corrected by CureCat, she said it was a Pholiota species based on spore color, I couldn’t find any Pholiota species that matched what I found on the internet though.
My dog ate one of my field guides, and my kids are using the other one, so all I have to ID any collections with are internet sources, nothing matched on Kuo’s page or any of the other sites I checked.
Found growing in a large cluster on a highly decomposed conifer.
No annulus, or even a trace of one dusted with spores.
Smell is sweet like anise.
