what do you think of Floccularia luteovirens f. alba
I found it with the other form on the Fungorum but it has not description, I am just guessing by the name alba that it would be a white from

The Floccularia I find in Sweden is called straminea. I don’t know if yours is the same, I just mentioned it as an example of how Floccularia can grow.

Yes they are the same!

I took them in the same locations after a day of sunshine, finally…..I have been watching the patches around our campsite for about a week and taking pictures of them at different times……some of the first pics where after heavy rains…. BTW why do you call it F. straminea I thought this was the former name?

Maybe not mycorrhizal

I still think Floccularia is a possible choice. I have seen straminea on one location only, on a grassy field, far from any trees (pine at least 100 m away), and it also looks saprobic. At least I suspect a saprobe when the stem base is embedding debris and mixes it with its hyphae.

The new photos there really look like Floccularia, not sure which one. Are you sure the new photos are the same species as the original photos of this post?

Except fir, of course.

Oops! But which one? There are a lot of things found with true fir which are not associated with Douglas fir at all.

Tricholoma, Armillaria, Floccularia

Somewhere in the above complexes, I think. Might be Tricholoma leucophyllum, which Aurora says is common under aspen in the Rocky Mountains and Southwest. To my eye, doesn’t seem yellow enough to be considered in the same description with T. flavovirens. And I don’t notice any reference to possible host plants if this is mycorrhizal.

does any one >>?

Want a spore print or a dried piece of this mushroom…? Agaricales sp. is not good enough for me lol

They looked like these except not as yellow….but they did have yellow which does not show well in these pics…..spore print is white…..what about Hygrophorus….or Armillaria…..?http://mushroomobserver.org/23637?search_seq=614082

still visible at edge of pileus, too. Not abundant, but present.

Neat -

The veil gets me… it looks like too much of a veil for Tricholoma. Is there a Calocybe with a veil? In anycase Calocybe in the west is a vairly rare id. White spores, with the veil… but doesn’t look like Amanita. They also don’t look much like Leucoagaricus, but maybe? Also they don’t really look like Floccularia… So many choices they don’t quite look like…

Calocybe/Tricholomella constricta?
