Ouch you are right ! Time to take notes or open my eyes instead of relying on bad memory.

But I clearly see conifer needles at the base of the stipe!

Spore deposit is not surprising.

It could have grown on dead wood, but definitely of hardwood. I was intrigued by the spore deposit on stipe. Is this frequent in hypholoma ?

This seems to be on needles.

Maybe it is a very light Stropharia aurantiaca (Leratiomyces ceres) ???
But I suspect a true Hypholoma, what speaks against lateritium or capnoides? I also suspect this to grow on buried wood or roots. Even consider H. radicosum again.

Is dark/purple. Pholiota would have a lighter orangeish brown deposit, and gills at this stage of maturity would have those hues as well.

Could it be a pholiota ?
Substrate: on leaves, in mixed hardwood forrest.
