Mycorrhizal

means that the mushroom’s mycelium underground is attached to tree roots and exchanging chemicals with them. Did you mean something else by “very mycorrhizal”?

This mushroom has essentially decurrent gills, Clitocybe subconnexa has essentially adnate gills.

Where is the gill bruising?
