the color reminds me of Serratia, a bacteria that forms red colonies.

got agar plates at work/school? why not see if you can grow this…?

can you tell us some more about Mycogone? I understand that a species of Mycogone is occasionally collected on Amanita caesarea in Europe, but I know blessed little about it.

What a neat bunch of pictures Darvin.

Very best,

Rod

Is that a fungus infecting the mushroom or is something else involved?

Interesting
