the gills remind me slightly of gymns, but the habitat and substrate don’t match, the stature/silhouette look more like a Cort or Inocybe in my opinion. way too orange for an Inocybe obviously. this Cort had the same exact shape to its cap as this obs http://mushroomobserver.org/21219 as many genus share similar characteristics such as their silhouette.

why a cort?
