Pholiota spp. in Clintonville

I was driving to Whetstone Park of Roses yesterday evening when I spotted this cluster of freshly developed Pholiota spp. fruit bodies.  After some hunting online and in some guides, I believe these likely to be the Pholiota aurivella.  According to, these could be P. limonella.  The identifying trait appears to be their difference in spore size.
