Hughes (2018): Revision of pyrophilous taxa of Pholiota described from North America reveals four species—P. brunnescens, P. castanea, P. highlandensis, and P. molesta, Mycologia, DOI: 10.1080/00275514.2018.1516960

Brief Description:

A burn Pholiota, pileus brown (light to strong brown; lacking reds); stipe relatively narrow (often < 4mm), whitish, not turning light brown (tawny) when old or handled (not “brunnescent”); not caespitose; smaller caulocystidia (< 40–120 × 10–40 µm).
But sometimes DNA is needed to distinguish P. highlandensis from P. molesta.
