P. rubricitrinus

Yes, this is a good example of a slightly reticulate P. rubricitrinus. They are very common in this type of habitat. The cap color is brick red when young and fades to a pinkish very quickly. It is a quick growing species and in grassy areas like this that are irrigated I have seen them pop up, mature and rot within a 48-72 hour period.

In light of other recent posts by Mycorhizing that could be P. rubricitrinus, application of the name to this collection merits consideration. I stopped short of making this proposal because I found the stipe color and ornamentation (solid orange-red with at least partial reticulum and/or ridging extending to the lower portion of the stalk) inconsistent with those of the typical presentations of rubricitrinus inferred from other MO posts and the info in NAB/BENA.
I think that input from other MO users (e.g., Jared McRae and Jason Bolin) who have a firsthand experience with the species would be very valuable here.
