It would be good to have a saved sample of these, to look at more. From the monograph (my mind is going blank, Singer or Hessler? Not Smith at least…), it suggests that these should look like G. croceoluteus. The NW key counsil suggests the same. But the monograph states the only difference is the “interwoven pileus trama” in G. croceoluteus, and the radial pileus trama of G. liquiritiae. The NW key consil suggested some other difference, I forget what right now.

But after spending two hours on the id of G. croceoluteus, I’ve been wanting to find an example of the “more common” G. liquiritiae, to compare. It would be good to look at these under a scope to see.

But also, the stipe on these doesn’t seem to compare to G. croceoluteus. If you have a saved sample of these, I wouldn’t mind looking at them in the future at some point. (Also I should post the micro-shots for G. croceoluteus, so people could use them in comparison…)
