Although I assumed that my illustration was pretty close to life-sized, I didn’t note that on the page. I do recall them being smaller than “normal” for our more familiar Sierran “albolutescens,” and Fred Stevens remarking at the time that he thought it was an unnamed species that had been seen before, and was recently published as A. stevensii. This took place at Desjardin’s SFSU Sierran Field Mushroom Class in 2005.
The fact of the pink gills when young as well as that bright chrome yellow cap with handling and its overall small size (altho maybe not smaller than 38 mm!) are making me lean towards stevensii vs moronii (new name for albolutescens).
R we confused yet??! Fred might have saved it, but I didn’t.
