No specimen available

Not sure about this one. I didn’t know to check for a “bleeding” stipe. Growing on wood. Gills white. Pileus mauve/brown/pink with a slightly inrolled margin and what I think are gill edges peeking out like a petticoat. Stipe is brownish burgundy with what seems to be a fuzzy white coating. Even with a magnifier I couldn’t tell for sure. From umbo to edge the pileus is 11mm. Solitary.

Two days later the pileus is pink. Attempts to “extract” blood from the stipe were unsuccessful due to bad position and fear of cutting it right off.


Still present a few days later, due to dry weather.
