This one is rather interesting. Grey, umbonate, in that moss under jack pine in Zone 15. But it looked too tall to be the commonplace Cantharellula umbonata, as did its neighbors, so I decided to “do” this one.
It’s not Cantharellula umbonata. Different gill structure (unforked), long stipe with corkscrew-like base where it was in the moss, and what the heck is that fluffy stuff at the top of the stipe?
Waxy cap and Clitocybe suggest themselves, but I really don’t feel confident sticking any name on this one.
(P.S. We have here another contender for the Stipe of the Week Award.)

Should have said Hygrophorus, not Hygrocybe.
and I obviously got pretty close :)
I’d like to see this in the genus Hygrophorus. It reminds of agathosmus or even more of odoratus, but then it should have a smell of bitter almonds (sometimes faint). It doesn’t seem to me like pustulatus (but I have always wanted to know what the true tephroleucus looks like(!)
