I definitely agree that the observations going by P. granulosa on this site and elsewhere show a lot of variation (maybe different species). But I think this is fairly representative of what passes for P. granulosa in CA…
It’s definitely not a Flammulaster. I’ll see if I can find these specimens.

I think this looks pretty different from the other observations of “P. granulosa” on MO. The squamules seem larger, more appressed and spaced differently. The margin seems almost sulcate. The lamellae seem more widely spaced and more deeply connected. The stipes seem to be much more fulvescent and almost tomentose or flocculose. I think this observation may represent a different species of Pholiota or “Flammulaster” than the one people here call P. granulosa.
