looking at the gills and attachment to the stipe … and trying to imagine what they might have looked like when fresh. I almost didn’t post such a dry specimen, but I like being able to recognize various species — especially the more common ones — in all their stages of development. I abandoned the Pluteus ID, however, when I thought I had been able to get the faintest hint of a white spore print … a miracle I thought from such a dry specimen. That may have been an error on my part. Appreciate you sharing your expert opinion.
