Everyone thought that I had found an Armillaria but nobody could say what it was…It was only after the spores were looked at that I found out what I had found.

it might not be umbonata (it truly doesn’t have that pointed umbo) but that would make it even rarer, eh? Surely Squamanita, at any rate.
Oh wait, I take it back. I can see umbos in some of them.
Pat yourself on the back for this one!
Are you sure this is S. umbonata? If it was that species, with 5 fruit bodies I would expect at least one to have the classic conical cap shape.
It was a defining moment in my life when I found this mushroom. I stayed behind while everyone kept walking and THAT is when I found these rare mushrooms. Of course I had no Idea what they were, but luckily I had a mycologist with me (Larry Millman) who promptly sent them to Harvard to be ID’d
Inocybe oblectabilis is listed here
