No specimen available

There are other possibilities for the ID of these trichs. For now I’m going with T. imbricatum based upon: scaly cap surface smoother toward the margin, no veil remnants observed on cap margins, lower 2/3 of stipe darkening to very dark reddish brown, stipe apex whitish,gills staing dark reddish brown in spots/blotches, context staining either red or brown in spots.

No spore drop.

One trait that does not match T. imbricatum is the stipes have an interior chamber that is psrtly stuffed to almost hollow.

Growing in small clusters in a damp mossy area near a small stream with hemlock, spruce, pine, birch, maple, and other hardwoods.

why T. imbricatum is a doubtful proposal.
