Yeah, Jacob, I see this now.

What I had taken for the illusion of darkening on account of the bunching of veil material and perhaps lighting/camera is likely due to a spore drop. I’m sure there are a few other traits one may point out to separate Hygrophorus from Gomphidius. I’ll check this out later today.

Sometimes IDing mushrooms from photos can be almost as much about Psychology as Mycology. One sees an example that includes a few traits of species X, and the phenomenon of completion kicks in… or maybe just call it unconscious wishful thinking that leads one to “see” other traits associated with X.

Just didn’t look like something ready to drop dark spores. Gills are so very white.

Gomphidius Subroseus??

I was thinking Gomphidius Subroseus…
It seems the shots I uploaded did not include the yellow at the base of the stem.
I added a shot that shows the yellow.

After reading about Hygrophorus speciosus…
This mushroom looked recently opened… And at best it is a washed out rose color. Definitely NOT orange, red, or brightly colored.
