barrowsii occurs w/pine in the SW, but the younger version shown does have a brownish not pale cap.

Mykoweb also states that this sp. can sometimes have a whitish bloom on the cap, although this is the first time that I and other PiPi campers had seen it. It was the apparent white cap that led us to barrowsii as the ID.

Rex-veris is a reasonable ID, and certainly more likely in the area.

Wow

Good Find Deb,
