Gills a bit more vivid than others I’ve recently encountered. See comments under…


Thin hilltop soil in a mix of scrubby oak and three needle pine, Pitch Pine, I think.

I was surprised to find this type this late in the season.

I was thinking the same, but I didn’t know if I was just trying too hard to see the pink.

I didn’t notice any pink on the stipe base.

But the one photo looks like there may be just a hint of pink.

Nice find

Good looking gills on that specimen!
