No herbarium specimen

Notes: found isolated in a patch of leaf litter near, but not directly next to forest trees, in East Bethel, Minnesota on 9/20/2014. The area was comprised of upland forest and prairie and lowland swamps and meadows. The smooth, eccentric pileus was pink around the outer edge and dark pink/red in the middle. The pileus margin was slightly uplifted and had a medium indentation in the middle. The diameter was 9 cm and there were leaves stuck to the top. The top layer of the pileus was easily removed from the rest of the organism. The gills of this fungus were attached, running down the stipe. They were cream and even. The hollow stipe was smooth, equal. The color of the stipe was pink and faded to purple towards the bottom. No spores were observed and organism was infested with maggots so it was thrown away.
