I agree that this is calophyllus.

beautiful capture, Irene.

I am not so convinced that our western NA species is also calophyllus …ours just do not show those clearly pink gills. DB claimed “pink gills” in one of his MH photos, but I don’t see it, and it is not present in any of what is shown here, or what came into our ACCF foray this past weekend, and Doug labeled as calophyllus. Those gills were pure bright white at maturity.

If pink gills are found in calophyllus, then what we have is not calophyllus.

There’s a story behind the broken stem

One of the participants in this foray got so excited when I handed it over to him, that he dropped it on the ground.. The picture would probably have been better if it had been earlier in the day, the daylight was almost gone at this occasion. It has been seen regularly after that, often late in the season, but not every year.

Very very nice one

I just know one place in Mollramer Wald where I found this species once about ten years ago … I consider it extinct now for Austria for every year I look after it again and it is not showing up anymore…
