I’ll take a look at the place.

The very pale pink gills are as described for longistriata.

What a nice find!

Do you have the possibility of get DNA from this material? In the 2014 paper on the Caesareae by Sanchez-Ramirez et al., the pink-gilled, brownish capped Caesareae of eastern Asia and eastern North America clustered together. I wonder if your material would have similar genes.

Very best,
