Dan. I think of the color of that first photo as stipe= pale yellowish/with a touch of cornsilk green. Cap= bay. And you’re right that fist photo was deep woods under the canopy of oaks and birches.
in natural light looks green and brown because the mushroom is reflecting green tinted light filtering through leaves in the canopy. Chloroplasts in the leaves absorb red and blue spectrum light leaving mostly green. The color is ‘true’ for that light situation, but is that the true color of the mushroom? In total darkness, the true would be black.
Yeah those colors are pretty true, this mushroom changes color dramatically as it develops
Looks brown and green
