Used references: Arora’s Mushrooms Demystified. Yellow gills suggest something near Lepiota luteophylla, which according to Arora has been found in Michigan as well as California. Small reddish fibrils on cap. The stipe does resemble Hygrophorus, but without further information (nearby tree species, latex coloration, size) impossible to be more certain. The odor of maple cookies suggested Lactarius to me at first, but few Lactarius have yellow gills, and only one species has maple syrup aroma that I am aware of.

I would have wanted to have this specie a name but now I wonder if whe will found a genius. anyway i consider this specie a mix of lepiota hygrocybe and lactarius. I will probably contact Yves lamoureux for more information ;-) thank for you’r help!

other info : only specimen growin with maples and conifers.
size of the cap was about 4-6 cm in diameter

didn’t check I was beliving it was an hygrocybe..

Was there any latex production, especially on the cap?
