Debbie they sure look like Pluteus to me i don’t think brown to be unusual for some reason…

I got no spore print, no pink anywhere. the gills turned pale brown…

with slightly colored spores present in the smash mount (pre-Meltzers).
not the same mushroom as the obvious Pluteus in the same day observation.

It is currently on my dryer…I can check for free gills when it’s done.

What could it be if it had pale brownish gills (which in fact it did, a few days later)? Or does the brownish pink spores of some pluteus just start out brownish then get pinkish??? it’s an odd one…

and the print pinkish, then I would guess “Pluteus.” …

Just noticed 27791 after posing the initial questions about the gills and print. Do you think these specimens are different?
