describes the sticky resin of my collection. I will post a photo in time (still using film!). If you have the northeastern book look under Steccherinum pulcherrimus. My collection may be a state record for WV.

No sticky resin, and

by ‘this’ do you mean what you found? Kuo has no mention of the stickiness, but does cite the parameters for the colors you gave as being possible. He also said there is a KOH red to pink…
Post a pic if you still have it, would like to see the variance.

Was there sticky resin? The color seems too pale as well. I think this is something else.

Ive stated this many times on here, that i think keeping erroneos names is important on this site. In fact, I think that Jason built that into his software. It helps us relate similar fungi, and helps us incorporate different attributes into our subconscious…
You’ll go to look up a mushroom, and see a different one, (or name proposal) next to it, and say ‘Hey, thats the mushroom I have’, not the original or one with most votes….
And at times it can also lead the comment thread to lose train of thought…

I personally keep all my mistakes.

I missed something (teeth). Gotta make sure I look at the larger images. Glad you caught it.

I found what I identified as this today. Very furry on top, flesh with a sticky “sap”. Color similar to Hapalopilus rutilans.
