JP3 and I have talked about this mushroom extensively and now believe it to be B. pallidoroseus rather than B. bicolor. The only reason to doubt that ID (in my opinion) is the bright red shade of the cap and stipe rather than the paler pink described in the books. I believe that it’s the field description in need of revision rather than this ID. It should also be noted that these caps and stipes will readily fade into pink tones when they are covered with leaves or other debris.
A sample will be preserved at a lower temperature than prior years and sent on for analysis.
