No, I think Alan is correct. I was asking if it was indeed growing from wood because it is hard to tell for sure, but it certainly appears that way, and the observer says he thinks it is growing lignicolously as well.

I was just kind of throwing Tricholoma out there to see what people thought, but it is almost certainly just a Pluteus.

appears to me to be terrestrial in leaf litter.

This is clearly a Pluteus. It is growing directly from wood and has free gill attachment, and the drab brown cap / texture that Pluteus has. Jrussula and Twizzer – Pluteus only has pink gills in age, at this stage they are white.

I believe it is growing from the wood but the heavy rains have prevented me from going out there in a timely manner and I’m afraid I can’t find it now for that verification.

Chaz, was it growing from the ground or from wood?

It’s white fuzz at the stipe base.

Agree it’s unlikely to be Pluteus.

is that?
