I am not sure about this one.

I am not sure about this one. S tenacellsus grows at this time of year directly from pine cones and this does look to have the "roots" but the stem is usually almost white at the top and yellow/orange towards the base. Even the old fruitbodies I have found are not this even brown colour. I would look at Collybia dryophila but that has no roots as far as I know so???

can

There was a very hard frost and it was semi-frozen,so would that make any differance to colour,I did look at C.dryophila but the root swayed me away,the ground is covered in cones so I presumed it must have been a buried one but could be wrong.
