Aye, will share reference link and one to my spotting of suggested species, http://www.mushroomexpert.com/ischnoderm..., http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/140.... The reason I suggested this is the variability that it presents, from a well defined cap to none at all, and everything in between.

@chesterbperry. Good to know. Do you have a link?

Hi Telse, I do not think this is F. pinicola, my suggestion belongs to the same family, and often has the folded over edges seen here. If there were drops of liquid forming on the pore surface that would confirm it.

The pale part reminds me of a snake, more than anything.
