Observation 85945: Tricholomopsis Singer

Dry moist yellow-brown agaric growing on decomposed stump level with the ground. Dull yellow gills are forked and partially cross linked, free from the stipe. Stipe is flattened and same color as the rest of the mushroom. Because of the gill pattern, I thought Pax, Tapinella, Pseudomerulius, (http://mushroomobserver.org/obs/68617?q=Aoqv) but no. Gills are not decurrent, stipe is not hairy.Slightly inrolled margin. Slight umbo is darker.Does not seem typical of Gymonpus or Gymnopilus I am familiar with.No doubt an easy one for the hot shots!

Doesn’t quite look like Gymnopilus

I have never seen intervenose gills in that species. Spore print color would help, my guess is that it will be white. Maybe you have something close to Xeromphalina or Callistosporium.

Spore print?

Rusty brown spore print; it could be Gymnopilus
White spore print; it could be Tricholomopsis
