Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

I wasn’t sure what this was when I saw it. I considered Simocybe centunculus but the free, slightly pinkish gills convinced me I was looking at a member of the Pluteus family. Darned if I know which member! The cap is 6.5cm, it’s fruiting on very old wood, solitary. The cap is velvety and the stipe is 6mm at the apex. Bay, black oak, white oak, live oak are all present.
