Habitat was an open area near melting snow surrounded by Mountain Hemlock at 6200 feet elevation. Could be H. goetzei /goetzii but that species is said to have adnate white gills.

They all seem very similar with C. pratensis being the largest and H. albicarneus being the smallest. The only way to know for sure would be to measure spores which wasn’t possible. Based on the proximity to melting snow and history of species in the area I still favor my original selection of H. albicarneus or H. goetzei /goetzii.
