actually has the most pronounced recurved scales…
The colors are perfect for P. squarrosa. Both can grow on the ground.
As for both species (and more) occurring on the Kenai… yes. That’s true.
But it doesn’t add any value to the identification effort.

but collected as a cluster on the ground. Note lack of “recurved scales” on leftmost fb. terrestris also has a dry cap.

both sp. and more occur on the Kenai.
