It was growing from a very rotten hardwood stump. Regrettably there is no specimen.

probably a different Pluteus species in the Hispidodermini

Pluteus umbrosus (from Europe) looks very similar from the top, but has a dark lamella edge, which i do not see in these pictures.

but how does it differ from Pluteus pouzarianus Pluteus magnus ? can you tell be macroscopic differences ?

Too large it would seem for Pluteus thomsonii @ 2 cm in cap size.

I think the current name is a good consensus. Did you happen to make a spore print? Pluteus umbrosus is listed as having pale pink colored spores. The dimensions seem in line with Pluteus umbrosus which are as follows: Caps 4-11cm stipe 5-8cm x 0.4-2cm. 2inches being roughly the same as 4cm. Kate

The cap is about two inches in diameter. That’s a bit big for an LBM.

How large was this mushroom cap size, stipe length?

This image strongly resembles the Pluteus umbrosus found in the Smithsonian Handbook of Mushrooms page 172. Pluteus thomsonii is very small in size ie. LBM hence the question of this mushrooms size. Really neat looking brown mushroom. Kate

Check out Roody’s Mushrooms of WV and the Central Appalachians
The cap reticulations can be felt as well as seen.

Where did you get this (or these) names? I saw something like this at the Los Trancos Preserve in CA about a year a ago now, and I knew it was Pluteus, but no idea which kind.

Can say more about how you got to this name? Can you give me a source so maybe I can make this id?
