Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

The pileus was white, convex and lightly fibrillose at the margin which turned outward at the very edge. It bruised a very pale pink and was 7.5cm across. There were lacy veil remnants attached which dried up and disappeared while I was drawing.
Gills were pink, then mauve and finally brown. They were free, close and thin.
Stipe was tapered at base and white below the annulus which was skirt-like. Above the annulus it was pink, which was only skin-deep, so to speak. It was 2cm at the apex.
The odor was mild and it was found fruiting in a small group on a lawn.
