The print was rather light but did seem to have a slight pinkish hue to it.

I would be interested in reading more about the north american group, especially any molecular work that has been done. I do have the stipe and a portion of the cap saved.

Appreciate it

Did you take a spore print herb? Pinkish hues? Spore size?

Macrolepiota procera and prominens are European names. We don’t have valid names for NA.
