i’m pretty sure an id attempt would be futile.
there are no good keys for my area and i’m pretty sure this is undescribed.
i’ll update the observation with clearer photos in a moment.

and looks like it had purple gills when young.

can you find more younger material?

for decent cort IDs you need young material (gill color, esp.), odor, taste and KOH tests: on cap, cap context and stipe context. then you need good keys for your area!

good luck, cort ID is a challenge. ;)

in a mixed forest.
this particular area had a lot of pine and was recently burned.

Hi! This is a cool find, especially if it’s on the ocean shore?
