Notes: Growing in leaf litter in Beech, Tulip, Oak forest. Very bright color, I would not call it gregarious – there were a total of 5 fruit bodies in a 4’ area. Spore print white as can be seen in a retracted cap in photo’ stipe darker at bottom, lighter where it meets the cap.

My Canon SX130 has a ‘vivid color’ setting, and I have been using it most of the time. I am still trying to decide whether or not it is offensive or disingenuous to use it. These were also processed by ‘Auto Correct’ in Microsoft Picture Manager. In the forest environments, I often underexpose to get the detail on the cap, and using the Auto Correct brightens the picture for web viewing. The last photo does not have the MSPM processing.
