Collection location: near White Wolf, Yosemite National Park, California, USA [Click for map]
Part of the Yosemite Fungal Survey. Collection # YNP1944.
On conifer wood, in mixed lodgepole pine/white fir forest. Elevation 7901 ft.
No hygrophanous fading on pileus, and smooth spores with a tiny germ pore. I think Kuehneromyces is eliminated. Chrysocystidia, and in fact, distinct cystidia of any kind, are also absent. There are groups within Pholiota that fit this general morphology and will try and key it out there.

When I have some free time over at Merritt, I’ll take some micro photos. So far, it seems to fall into a hard-to-key group of Pholiota.
These are def. not Kuehneromyces vernalis, or K. mutabilis. Not sure if any other Kuehneromyces are reported from Cali. When are you going to post scope photos on this one?
