No specimen available

Fruiting on a heavily watered lawn with birches.

Gills were pale greenish yellow, bruising rusty brown, and decurrent. Some of the gills had “veins” and some formed netting (pores?) near the apex of the stipe.
The stipe was oddly shaped, bright yellow at the apex, dingy below. It was fibrous and the fibers were dusted with spores. The stipe also bruised the color of dried blood. 2.5cm across and 1cm long.
