Thanks and I agree, Pholiota sounds promising.

Obs 58321 looks very similar in the cap’s sticky look and the heavily deposited rusty brown spores stuck to the cap. Also, that wavy margin and that tiny dimple in the center of the cap?
To the contrary, the stipe of your observation is much thicker and colored differently overall.
Happy hunting, nice pictures!
