These appear to have very fine black hairs on the edge (best visible in 2nd photo). A few ammonia drops turned this yellow, then orange after several minutes. Found on bark on the ground. Deciduous trees.
7/8/17 Added photos taken one week after ammonia.


This was taken immediately after adding a few drops of ammonia. This photo shows the black hairs.

The P. hypotropum group all have conspicuous bare white splotches underneath. You can just barely see it out of focus in the thumbnail photo. Photos deliberately focusing on the underside just make it easier to be sure.
