I'm guessing V. bohemica based on what looks like cotton wood leaves and twigs on the ground and the color of the fungi. Was there a river or wet area near by?

Yes there were small streams formed at the side of the old logging road where this was found and a small swampy body of water fairly close by. Thanks
