…the caps do bear a resemblance to Tricholomopsis rutilans, which makes me wonder if these are G. luteofolius. Hope you get a definitive ID soon, the microscope should reveal all…

Couldn’t say one way or the other. Subscribed for future microscopy.

makes more sense.
i even thought Gymnopilus aeruginosus at one point.
i know the exact location of this log and will scope them this year, hopefully.
although, i’d bet my lunch money on undescribed.
i can’t seem to pin-point it in Hesler’s monograph.
i thought Murrill would have noticed this one.

luteofolius Vs. luteoviridis

The stipe in this collection seems to be “appressed fibrillose-striate” as opposed to the glabrous surface typical for luteoviridis. Also, I don’t see Any tapering at the apex.
