This species has been looked at in the past by E. Horak but it remains undescribed, I have written a description and if Christian is still interested I will be happy to continue working on it with him!
The basidiomes from this collection were rather small with the largest having a diameter of about 13-14mm, it is very early in the season and the conditions are still not ideal so I’m sure I’ll be able to make many more collections with some much larger specimens likely, I have seen this reach diameters of up to 30mm, there is an interesting macroscopic chemical reaction with 3%KOH, the lamellar trama and hymenophoral trama both turn a brilliant cherry red.
Another interesting macroscopic characteristic is the often long radicating stipe that has many rhizomorphs that are concolorous with the basidiomes.
My other observations of this fungus are linked below, the first and second links have micrographs of the taxonomically significant structures.
