Will do. Regardless, hope to meet you at NEMF in a few weeks!

I have looked at all Entoloma salmoneum & Entoloma quadratum on this site. I only found one that had a thick stipe. I found none that had a fleshy cap like this. I found only one that did not have a conical cap. So while I think the evidence strongly supports my identification, without a spore print, we are unable to know for sure.

The main thing I’m noticing is the color and the slightly drier look and feel than what is typical in the Hygrocybe/Humidicutis genera. Also, I found these in the same habitat and area as my other Entoloma salmoneum finds. There is something unique about the salmon coloring that speaks Entoloma salmoneum to me. Sadly, I did not get a print. Thanks for your interest.

not every fungus fits a textbook description. Conical and not so robust is “typical” but the ribbed, twisted stem, texture, vague white remnants on the cap, along with general color profile guided me, I guess. I have zero doubt this picture shows E. salmoneum

Pretty strong vote. Can you back it up with your reasoning?

has a conical fragile cap and it never has a robust stem like these.

Funny people

To bad they hide behind an anonymous vote instead of stating their case, doesn’t make much room for progress.

is wrong for E. salmoneum. Robust stature is wrong as well. A spore print would be good to have.
