Pholiota Subg. Flammuloides would be a good label. I think the Pileus coloration, glutinous pileipellis, copious caulocystidia and terrestrial habitat make a good case for it.

You can get past Subgenus Flammuloides without micro. Personally, I think this obs might represent a species from Subg. Flammuloides Sect. Lubricae, but there is no way to know for sure without a closer look. The burnt habitat is not exclusive to section Carbonicola.

Also bear in mind that these taxa are described in a North American monograph for a genus that has not undergone extensive genetic scrutiny.

Nice pics.

searching, and find this very similar to P. spumosa. In this case, the burnt place would be just a coincidence, once they are also on wood chips habitat.
