Growing in Lodgepole pine woods at the border with Quaking aspen woods. Occasional.
Growing on the ground, this gill fungus appears to have a dark brown spore print (on the stem), no distinctive smell, but the taste is slightly of almonds. I keyed it very tentatively to Phylloporus using:

Unless you have a microscope handy, that’s the name I’d apply to it. As Ron says it should have a black or gray spore print, but it could appear dark brown.
