I know this species as I am the proud collector of the type species. Its not yet published but will have the name of Tricholomopsis scabra.

There are a few things that lead me to believe this is T. rutilans, the spores are relatively small compared to the spores of T. ornaticeps which are described as being 8-8.5×3-5µm and ovoid in shape, the spores from this collection are 5.5-7×3-5.µm and are broadly ellipsoid to drop shaped.
Pleurocystidia are present in this collection whereas T. ornaticeps lacks pleurocystidia, this was found in association with Pinus radiata whereas T. ornaticeps is known only from native NZ forests.

Why not
