I don’t know, seemed like the closest Pluteus I could think of…

This description by Michael Kuo does not sound terribly convincing:

“Cap tiny, “yellow with smoky reticulated veins radiating from the center” (Saccardo); gills white before maturity; stem with a fuzzy base, probably white overall (bad punctuation in the original description makes this unclear); microscopic characters unknown; found on hickory logs in the 19th Century, somewhere in North America. (Note: This species is obviously poorly documented. It has been synonymized with Pluteus admirabilis by some authors, and with Pluteus chrysophaeus by others. Some authors maintain the species. The brief description of the cap surface does seem distinctive.)"
