I know there is a lot of confusion and interest in, the pink and blue entolomas. If anyone has a handle on it, it is probably Noordelos. I am okay with the idea that every specimen you see is unique. It is hard to draw conclusions as they seem so rare, but I am glad to see that there is more lit out there.

I am compiling a list of pink entolomas. Other than the ones mentioned here, do you know of any?

Glad this was saved ..

Here is an interesting reference to a pink Entoloma in Tasmainia:

If you did not take them, I definitely have them. Everything is very dry and waiting for cataloging, or in this case, sending to Christian. They are covered, so I did not take the time to look last night. This is the first time this species has been listed on MO. Nice discovery!



What do you think Christian? This was definitely not “On calcareous soil in meadow near Corylus and Carpinus: Austria”. Maybe a NA relative in need of a name?

Hi Martin and Co.

It was amazing to explore some fungi in NA. I dont have the specimen of this Entoloma, so hope you can find them, Martin? By the way the collection is not fitting E. roseum as the gill egdes are serrulate and pinkish. So E. callirhodon is a better match. All the best

As with several

of my recent observations, these were spotted by the Danish mycologist
Jacob Heilmann-Clausen, who wrote this book back in ’89: http://www.nhbs.com/...
He will soon publish a new book on Tricholoma in Europe that will be one of the first to integrate sequence data with a field guide. I think he may have taken these and the pseudobaespora with him – which is his right – he found ’em. So I will have to check when I get home. I would have planned to save them for the lab class I will co-teach this fall at NIH…, But if they are there, Christian, you can have them. Better yet, come foray with me this weekend in Shenandoah and we will find some for you….Oh yeah, can we call these Leptonia?

Hi Martin,

I’m working on this group of pink Entoloma right now, and this is a very interesting specimen.
I’d be very appreciative if you could send it to the address listed on my Summary/Profile page.

Excellent find.

Nice one Martin!
