Was found with one other of the same organism on September 20, 2014 in a patch of leaf litter near, but not directly next to forest trees, in East Bethel, Minnesota. The area was comprised of upland forest and prairie and lowland swamps and meadows. The smooth, centrally located pileus was auburn in color and slightly darker in the middle. The pileus margin was slightly rigid and had a medium indentation in the middle. The diameter was 3.6 cm. When sliced down vertically, the pileus flesh was cream colored and very thin. The gills of this fungus were attached. They were tan, wavy, and a level 2-3 on the tier scale. The hollow stipe was smooth, equal, and had a pink/auburn color to it. The dimensions were 1.5 × 5 cm. There was no volva, no annulus, and no significant odor detected.
