taken two days after collection. I had placed the cap onto the spore board and then never got around to removing it until two days later. Early on, a thick white print quickly developed. But when I finally removed the mushroom from the board, the print had been converted into a thick pink print. The gills had also turned pinkish brown. MushroomExpert says the gills on this species may become pinkish in age. Gives rise to a few questions. Is that really a pink spore print? Or did pigment leach from the gills and turn it pink? If a print is taken form a post-mature specimen, may one expect a pink tint?
When I wiped the spores off the board with a white tissue, the spore residue was clearly pink.
