At first I thought this was a pale amerirubescens. Cap seemed to lack innate streaks associated with brunnescens. Stipe showed plenty of rubescence, as seen in photo (same as prior to handling). Star-split bulb did point toward brunnescens, but I had just harvested a classic Blusher that showed splitting on the base.
Mainly globose spores settled this, at least in my mind… perhaps only for the time being :-) Perhaps brunnescens var. alba may be considered?
Where oak woods meets a rocky boundary with a grassy area.
Specimen dehydrating and will be available for study.

Recently several people have asked for accountings of the status of material that they have sent to us in Roosevelt. We do keep close account of each collection. We also keep account of our queues of material being sampled and then sent out to the labs that collaborate with us. Of course, sometimes all we can say is the material has been sent to the lab or the specimen will be sampled in the next month or something vague like that.
Your dedication to keeping us hobbyist mushroomers abreast of developments relevant to our submissions is exemplary.
And the existing identification on this page looks good.
