Pink v Brown

This is a very common issue in interpreting Entoloma spore deposits.
Often called cinnamon brown (which they often are), sometimes salmon or flesh-colored.
Very rarely pink in a generally interpretable way.

I thought the exact same at first until I read spore print is light brownish. If that’s dr dhostyhead’s interpretation of mycologists’ pink, Pouzarella it is. If the spores are truly light brownish, lacking any pink tones, I should think that rules Pouzarella out, no?

sounds good.

They are beautiful mushrooms.
The one I linked to was found in upstate New York, southern Adirondacks.
I have micro data on it somewhere, will see if I can find it.
