These were not extremely viscid but the conditions were a little dry. They seem to fit into the trivialis-collinitus-mucosus group. They had the straight stipe with bands on the lower part.
The spores were large and perhaps even wider than what I see on MH. However they do fit into the range of either C. collinitus or C. mucosus.
They were ~ 14.0-15.5 X 7.2-8.5 microns.
Since they were growing in an area with mostly lodgepole pines @ ~ 5200ft, I’m guessing C. mucosus.

A good call by a good man!

Incidentally, the Sierran C. mucosus is 99% like the European collections. The two needle pines are their host. In general, these large, true Myxaciums are very tight molecularly and form a fairly well supported group.
