Should be Chroogomphus

Red-brown to orange to ocher color, growing with pine, decurrent gills. Microscopy needed to assign to species.

Species ambiguity based on macroscopic features is discussed here:
Miller Jr., O.K. (2003). The Gomphidiaceae revisited: a worldwide perspective. Mycologia 95(1): 176-183.

Not clear why Alan voted ‘Doubtful’ for the genus.
