from 4 years ago that I made in San Diego. Unifying habitat feature is the presence of pine.

im interested to know what these are, they have some of the same characteristics as the bruising pholiota I just found. these are very interesting indeed.

This one looks really cool under the scope. Spores are small, 5 × 4, smooth, shaped like an egg (ovoid). Pleurocystidia abundant, fusiform and capitate with a light yellow ball on the end (mounted in water). Cheilocystidia narrowly utriform / fusiform.
