P. pauperculus

P. pauperculus, described from New Zealand, comes close morphologically although the cap colors for this collection seem paler than usual for the species


As with most Pluteus an ID without microscopical data is very difficult

Stipe colour.

The morning I took all of these images it was raining lightly, and the colour saturation was surprising. Some of the colours in some of the fungi didn’t really show, (very low light at the time) till opening the shadow detail in PS.
Especially the light greens and yellows. I used a white balance card for all the images taken. Hope this is helpful in a determination.

Not necessarily
