Found these with Joe Cohen on a very rainy day, when we and all mushrooms collected were soaked, and no in situ photos were possible.
M. maculata here is atypical—small and non-fasciculate, but apparently this is not so rare, especially in the Eastern states (A H Smith). The mushrooms were growing on a conifer log, with bark. Cap cuticle peels off in segments, odor spermatic when crushed, taste none (or the bite I took was too small). Microscopy is all OK for the species. Small spore size eliminates M. galericulata.
