These are not easy to say — would have liked to see the gills of a younger fruitbody. Here is my treatment of X. fulvipes.

I’m still leaning toward X. fulvipes

the mushrooms were not obviously growing on wood; were scattered versus clustered there were only 3 or 4 mushrooms in this group); taste was somewhat bitter; gills were more adnate than decurrent.

Why this one?

Why X. fulvipes, and not X. campenella?
