Your size matches one I found earlier and posted here. It measured 6.75cm.
Trudell/Ammirati say H.conica is “one of the easier mushrooms to identify” and suggest that H.singeri is identical except for the viscid stipe. Wish there was more genetic sequencing going on with our PNW mushrooms. I think there is a lot to learn here yet.

Thanks!

My lighter measures 3"

So I’d say 2.5" wide, maybe 3.5 tall..??

“Huge” is relative to the others that I’ve found this season

Huge? Any guess as to cap width?
