Observation 222384: Entoloma subgenus Leptonia (Fr. : Fr.) Noordel.
When: 2015-11-08
No herbarium specimen

Notes: It is difficult to find reliable pictures of species that look like this one to compare, so I am not 100% sure, but it fits.

The combination of the smooth blue-grey stipe, pink gills, and yellow-brown to grey-brown cap keys to Leptonia gracilipes in Arora. Index Fungorum lists the most up-to-date name as E. gracilipes.

Spores are angular

Growing from the soil under Redwood, Tankoak, and mixed evergreen near a stream in Carmel, California. Clusters of a black-capped Leptonia/Entolomatoid were fruiting a few feet away.
