T. rutilans can fruit most any time of year in my experience
(there are MO observation from fall, winter, and spring). At the elevations you were collecting at, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it in the summer months.

In my experience, it often appears terrestrial because it continues to decay wood into the very late stages of decomposition, when it might be better described as ‘lignin-rich humus’.

R. onychina tends to have a very evenly colored, darker, and most importantly smoother cap (without the fine hairs of a Tricholomopsis).

Don’t those grow from wood? These were terrestrial. I was also under the impression T. rutilans was a winter fruiter. Maybe someone should update the info on Mykoweb.
