Spore print color…

appears to support your proposal, Timothy. And, they look like P. nidulans to me. I had wondered if they could possibly be a very orange version of Panellus stipticus. But those have white spore print.

Tapinella panuoides is similar, but has forked gills. It is also reported to be a fall species.

Interesting find. To my knowledge, P. nidulans is not known to be a “split season” mushroom.

Date – 4/3

These were observed on 4/3. Salmon pink spore print.

I am unfamiliar with fungi here in NY, recently moved here, but am trying to learn. So if you have any info, please share.

Are there any lookalikes for these in the north east?

Was this observation made on 4/7?

Seems like unusual timing for P. nidulans.
