I would of liked to have seen these scoped too, sadly they rotted first. I’ll make a bigger effort if I see them again.

Could be is not exactly a confident ID call. But my reasons; On wood, yellow attached gills,specimens are weathered but enlarging the photos shows scurfy cap. I am a field guy but scoping this might have helped. T. rutilans has enormous cheilocystidia.

Why do you think this is Tricholomopsis rutilans? Looking at other pictures on MO would make me think that is a completely different species.

The larger specimens had a cap diameter of maybe 5-7 cm.

remarkably like Chrysomphalina chrysophylla, however… it’s just south of the 20th parallel.

Wow that’s cool

It’s kind of like Hygroaster… but thinner gills.
