Who: jeff (theoneje)
Growing in a cluster of 3 out of thin mycelial mat adhering to soil. One additional fruitbody nearby (already removed from ground).
Location is very dry, receiving appx. 5" of a rain/year, but area experienced recent torrential rains/flooding.
Mushrooms were already a little desiccated when found. Spore print pink. No distinctive odor/bruising.
Note: I am just learning microscopy, so I would not emphasize that too much in case my numbers are off!
Specimen in personal herbarium.

Most Pluteus species have large cystidia that aren’t all the difficult to find. (Well, if you want to distinguish between pleuro and cheilo, a carefully prepared section should be made.) A stained smash mount of a small speck of gill material should provide a look at some cystidia. Shape(s), dimensions, and numbers of horns could be helpful.
