when I first found them I thought I found hedgehogs, then I looked closer and realized I had no idea what I was holding, but for some reason they look like they might be edible, and what do you know – arora says they are. I dont think im going to eat them though.

thanks for the ID.

Has a less red cap, and a grey-tomentose stipe.
