Under conifers growing on the ground normally in troops. They like to grow in marshy areas along streams where you find moss.

These are usually passed up my most mushroom hunters as they are seen as just another LBM. These can be very abundant at times when other mushrooms are scarce typically early in the season. They have a very tough almost wood like stem which is one of the main ways to identify this mushroom. They are also more of a Reddish brown.
