Actually this looks more like a Flammulaster, that would be my guess without more detail.

I agree with Darvin that it looks a lot more like a Cystoderma than Pholiota. I would love to see a photo of the spore print and even better a photo of the spores. Any chance you can ask the collector to send a dried collection?

I asked the observer if he was sure it had a brown print and he said:

“Yes, I am completely certain. I was a little unsure of what to think as well, because I picked up the cap, and saw this light brown print.

I rechecked and looked at the gills to be sure i wasnt insane. You could see that they were still white in places where there were no spores on a piece here or there, but in between they had become a dark color.

Ill see if I can keep an eye out in the same area and catch a few more and print again. I only printed this one."

Brown spore print…

White gills with a brown spore print? The gills look very white! I know some species change as they mature, but this sure looks like a Cystoderma.
