I would not place too much stock in that feature, as the color you describe could have faded in such mature material. By all other outward appearances, this is a good example of what I know to be T. cantharelloides.

Trogia (cantharelloides)?

The question was raised by email if the lamellae had a lilac tint. In this case ‘Trogia cantharelloides’ would a possibility. The repeatedly forked, very narrow lamellae being a further characteristic of this species.

However, when collecting this mushroom I did not see any lilac tint. The lamellae appeared to be creme colored. Picture P1052560 gives the best impression from my point of view.
