I’ve added a description of G. pholiotoides- http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name_description/5076

I would like to amend my earlier comment of " I believe this is one of the species in Heslers section Annulati." I meant to say that this strongly resembles the species in Hesler’s section Annulati.

The mushroom in this observation was collected in Portugal and is not likely to be a species described in Hesler’s monograph. I suggest the name G. pholiotoides only to provide a morphological comparison.

Elsa. In G. fulvosquamulosus the squamules are quite aggregated. The species in this observation possess squamules that are strongly appressed, much as they present in G. junonius. Although, the general gestalt is much closer to that of G. luteus. I believe this is one of the species in Heslers section Annulati. I had hoped to compare it to G. armillatus this evening.

This one looks quite hardy and strong, indicating a Pholiota.

Also, the ‘melt’ on the cap indicates Pholiota. It is picture perfect.
