I have never seen a luteovirens collection like this before… up in the pacific northwest I don’t think it grows on any red (or otherwise brightly colored) species! so cool!

Look at the gill edge!

Wrinkled/crenulate, like a woman’s ruffled skirt hem! The white contrasts nicely with the red of the cap, and the greenish-yellow of the Hypomyces on the gills. Truly a one-of-a-kind photo!

nice color contrast with that red cap.
