Seems to be quite a bit more rare than Galiella rufa. This was collected during a foray with the Cumberland Mycological Society and I do have the specimen but I was not the collector. There seams to be a paucity of photos in the field for this mushroom. If I find it, I would like to get some shots in situ.

very nice find
