    Something this distinctive would be seemingly easy to identify, but I can't find anything...help!
    Found under spruce, 10,000 ft asl.

    Hard to say. Looks rather mature, don't ya think?

    The waxiness of the gills reminds me of Laccaria, but i couldn't venture a better guess. Any more photos?

    No more photos, the others were out of focus.
