YNP label is exactly 4.5 cm. That is the outside size range for moseri (2-4.5 cm); these are larger.

Erroded gills, whose edges blacken on the margin and brown are also found in Tricholoma serratifolium, an eastern sp. This might be a western counterpart, or something else entirely.

Let’s wait and see what this turns out to be, before assuming it is this or that. I think that we can agree that it is a Trich, at any rate.
