Do not believe this is G. pholiotoides

According to the original description, the type species (only known collection, unless I am mistaken) was found growing on Royal Palm. The gills are short-decurrent, there is a annulus on very young specimens that leaves an annular zone, and the stipe is concolorous (or paler) than the cap. The specimens shown here do not have short-decurrent gills, nor are these specimens growing on palm but on pine. Also, unless it is the quality of the photo, the stipe as shown here
seems too pale if compared to Murrill’s description.
