Laccaria bicolor or Laccaria proxima

Thanks for keeping me honest! :) Fortunately, the specimens were close by… yes they are pinkish/lilac and as I looked up they are directly under an Eastern white pine. So… my notes were wrong. The sun was going down yesterday and the mosquitoes were atrocious (my attempt at an explanation of some sort!). So it looks like I will break out the microscope since these could possibly be Laccaria proxima as well.

I need to go back and check

I suppose they do appear pinkish or lilac in the photos… they did not strike me that way in person.

Lilac gills…

In this case, why not Laccaria bicolor?
