Several of these were found fruiting with C. cotoneus (Observation 6166) with Montery pine. I was unable to find any young enough to see the actual gill color. Where they’re attached to the stipe they’re a dingy yellow which suggests C. cinnamonmeus, using Arora’s key.

I’m pretty convinced that these are the same as in 6166, older and a bit dried up, and with gills that have gained a more rusty colour from the spores. That colour can be misleading, and it was wise to try to find younger ones to see the true gill colour.
And you did! (6166)
