Hey you got it right, the spore print for Phyllotopsis nidulans should be light pink to pinkish/light brown.

I have encountered them growing on newly (1 year old) downed conifers, they usually smell bad if growing from hardwoods, but not bad from conifers.

Debbie Veiss has told me some stories about some stinky Phyllotopsis nidulans, I guess they really reek if fruiting from the wrong tree…watch those noses.
