Doesn’t seem to be a real Pholiota

- It doesn’t look anything like any real Pholiota species I know of (e.g. astragalina, aurivella, flammans, gummosa, spumosa, squarrosa, terrestris, velaglutinosa…)

- It looks like a Flammulaster or Phaeomarasmius (both in the Tubariaceae).

- There are no sequences in Genbank for it.

- In Smith & Hesler 1968, it’s placed in Stirps Aurea, which in modern classification is a mess. The other species in there are:
… P. aurea (a Phaeolepiota)
… P. fulvella (appears to be an Agrocybe)
… P. erinaceella (a Flammulaster)
… P. pseudosiparia (also looks like a Flammulaster/Phaeomarasmius; Champignons du Quebec suggests it may be a Phaeomarasmius)

(Note that Flammulaster granulosus is NOT a synonym.)
