Who: Katherine Collins (iluvmyshrooms)

Specimen available

Found in Sunny area in mulch growing near an evergreen tree. Large in size. Gills changed to a purplish pink along with the stipe. It had lost its ring, but I could see some membranous remnants of it. The type of scales, prominent umbo, and color are all characteristic of this mushroom. It is still available for further study.
