No specimen available

I should remember what this is called, but it eludes me today. Cap is yellowish-orange; gills orangish edged in white, decurrent; stipe 3 inches, bruising where handled a dark greenish-brown; base of stipe with abundant grass still adherring to it, similar to Marasmius oreades. Gills are distinctive, wavy, somewhat crowded. My photo of them, as well as the cap, were corrupted. Will try to get more tomorrow.

this is probably Paxillus involutus. Found near a birch tree, 2 blocks away. Usually find this when the cap is still inrolled, and didn’t recognize it automatically (although I should have).
