Gill color

Quoting mushrooms demystified on the gills, “at first sulfur-yellow, becoming greenish-yellow or olive, then finally dusted purple-brown to nearly black with spores.”

In person the gill color matched the greenish-yellow/olive, unfortunately getting the color balance for them right was trickier then I could pull off.

have more yellowish gills from the start. Were the gills more yellow in person than online?
Also, the apex of the stipe would be the same yellow in the cap for fasciculare.

More green gills.

Again, the pics didn’t do it justice, but the gills were green, unlike this observation – http://mushroomobserver.org/62048?q=3NeY.

Edited for spelling.
