Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Amazingly, this is the first time I’ve seen this mushroom but recognized it from pictures. This one is 9.4cm across. The day before I took these photos it was much paler and very watery. Touching it caused an instant dark brown bruise that persisted. It’s fruiting about 3 feet away from an old tree stump, can’t tell what it was.
