Collection location: Yosemite National Park, California, USA [Click for map]
Found under lodgepole pines, and mixed conifer.
Part of the Yosemite National Park Fungal Survey, num. YNP184.
Pink-ish brown spores, in a mossy wet area, no clear odor.
Adding some micro-details.
The first shot is of the cap surface at 400x in KOH. The cap surface is a cutis, hyphae are pigmented, only inter-cellular, no encrusted pigmentations. Only a few clamp connections are seen.
The second micro-shot is of spored from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are angular, ellipsoid, 5-7 sided. The apr. size is 9 × 7 um.
I looked through the Entolomatoid fungi of Western North America by Largent, and I just not sure. It looks like something close to E. rhodopolium, but not sure. No clear odor which is strange for that. The pileus is a rather thin, which kinda fits, but the cap should be hygrophanous and striate. So, no idea, like with most Entoloma, it either matches nothing, or way too much, depending.
