Sulphur knight?

Tricholoma sulphureum?

Description:

90% sure they were growing under beech. Gills aren't as crowded as my other spotting of T. sulphureum but are still quite thick (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/164...). According to wikipedia T. equestre , T. sulphureum, T. auratum, and T. aestuans are all similar: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricholoma_... T. equestre has a sticky cap, white flesh, thin crowded gills, and a mealy smell. T. sulphureum has yellow flesh, thick sinuate gills, and a smell of coal gas: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricholoma_... because of the thick, sinuate gills on pic 2 I'm guessing T. sulphureum for now. But flesh seems pale on first photo
