Are you saying this guy’s ITS is too different from

the P. tuberculosa group? If so, why exactly?

Pholiota sect. Flammuloides

The paper you linked seems to show this species in sect. Flammuloides but I think that’s just an issue with the bar for that taxon being too wide in the figure. P. scamba, P. astragalina and P. squarrosa are progressively closer to P. sect. Flammuloides (but not in it) than P. “sp-TENN61700” is.

If I had to guess based on macro morphology, I’d guess that this was something related to Pleuroflammula tuberculosa like Pholiota multifolia or Pholiota subsulphurea but those should should be nowhere close to this based on the ITS sequence. That’s unless they don’t form a natural group.
