A caespitose cluster growing on the root of a white pine.
Tough cartilaginous stipes. Pleasant fungal odor.
Unfortunately, the two collected fbs haven’t dropped a single spore (still too young?).
I could not find a matching ID in any of the various field guides in my possession (e.g., Phillips, Roody, Bessette).

Yet another species I certainly heard of but never collected personally.
The mushrooms did eventually drop a very light spore print — it was too light to be able to judge the color accurately, but I would guess it was off white to pinkish (?). The spores were colorless/hyaline, smooth, lacrymoid and less than 10 microns in length at x400. These properties match those of luxurians in Mushroom Expert.
