I’m not finding a description, but based on the other photos on MO, also seems much larger, bulkier, lacks the forked gills, and doesn’t fruit from a single needle. You can compare the size of the mushroom from the needle fragments they are fruiting from.

Seems much larger, differently colored, lacks forked gills, and doesn’t look like it fruits from a single needle.
