Not all of these were id’ed by Dr. Desjardin. This one I found on the last day up there, and Dennis was kinda gettin’ burned out by then. Actually often he would by too busy to deal with students bothering him with details. If I remember right, he didn’t look at this one, but I got one of his students, and she said, yeah that looks about right. I think things were gettin’ packed up at the time, and we didn’t get out the microscope on any of these on the last day. So, this one might be just roughly id’ed.

Seems like an odd color for C. inversa

I’ve always applied this name to a mushroom that has a color pretty similar to a candy cap (Lactarius rubidus). However, if Dennis applied the name, then I’ll take his word for it.
