Hi Sava,

The pink tints on the stipe and the cystidia with small apical projections certainly put this on the Pluteus roseipes group.

Whether this is the same as the European P. roseipes remains to be determined, there is at least one North American taxa in sect. Hispidoderma that can present pinkish tones on the stipe (Pluteus glabrescens Murrill) but this is a very poorly known species
