I was hoping to get some help on this observation. Unfortunately my specimen is no longer fresh. It has been refrigerated, but now is totally dried. I do not even know if this is the correct genus, but it was all I could come up with. Hope I will find this again, so I can work with a fresh specimen. Appreciate your comments greatly!

Why not but…

… a control of microscopic features is always important to exclude close morphologically species.
A good tip to recognize P. phyllogena on the field: make a cut on a fresh specimen and look at the flesh. It must be violet!
