Recognized by sight: if the gill trama is divergent, Hygrophorus has to be considered. But given the track record of mixed collections, Very atypical morphology for the proposed species, lack of explanation about the gill shots (lack of engagement with the identification process here on MO), and introduction of fake names to be provocative, I’d be very cautious with this record.

I am flattered by the fact that you are able to ID from my poor photos. If you would like to have a look at the real specimens, they will be accessed into the UBC herbarium shortly. Adolf
P.S. The corresponding specimens will filed, I am sorry, as Hygrophorus piceae Kühner.

I almost proposed that name

last night, but figured eventually someone (maybe) would look at the specimens and figure it out. Or we could propose the name as per usual on MO!

I would like to annotate the herbarium
label to Cuphophyllus

The stature, decurrent gills, colors and pink staining on the stipe base all fit.
