Notes: This specimen was in the back section of the park, about 30 yards from the creek on a slight knoll next to a Pine Trees and some shrubby trees, an island surrounded by rough grasses.
The cap was about 2.5 inches across. See the image for the entire length measurement. The top of the cap was very satiny-shiney. The cap was covered by red clay and sand from the mushroom growing up through this material. The gills were white but there is some pink-red stains as shown in the photos. There are bugs in it and evidence that rodents have eaten on it. The gill attachment is free.
I took home the cap and have a white spore print. The cap did not become appreciatively smelly. I will measure and photograph spore when I get to it.
