Observation 12688: Hygrophorus pudorinus (Fr.) Fr.
When: 2008-10-09
No herbarium specimen

Notes: White mushrooms with pink tinting at the center of the cap and on the gills. Stem a bit scaly, no pink there.

Found near a hunk of deadwood in a stand of nearly pure Eastern white pine.

First photo is of a specimen growing from a hollow space under the wood, with a curved stem to keep the cap oriented correctly for spore dispersal. Latter four photos are of a second, slightly larger mushroom. There were at least two more in the area.

Addendum, Oct. 17: five more photos. Photos 6-7: a small, dried-looking one. Photos 8-10: a larger one, slugs munching on it, with a long rooting stipe. These were in the same general area. The second was near the same piece of wood as the ones in the first five photos, but the first was at least a couple of feet from that wood.
