Notes: A few scattered about a grassy area under valley oak. When conditions are good, they seem to appear every season around this time. Pileus 2.7cm, stipe .5cm across. Gills thick, yellow.
I’ve added a photo of a specimen that was fruiting with the one originally photographed. There is no sign of blackening. The gills were yellow , at first, with yellow orange edges as it aged. It looks like they were probably adnexed. There was no viscidity or stickiness. The umbolate pileus seems not to fit the descriptions of H. miniata. I can’t find anything else that fits the habitat, either.
