No specimen available

Fruiting in a small group in the landscaping of a parking lot. The peridium was 1 mm and it bruised reddish near the base on the outside as well as the very dramatic reddening when cut longitudinally. I’m not sure the long base fits with C. areolatum. I’ve included a rather out of focus shot of the spores with no staining. It might help someone who actually knows what they’re looking for. This specimen was 3.5 cm across. Another was 2.3cm across and 4.8cm tall.
