No specimen available

Found under bishop pine.

The last photo shows the edge of the gill stained with KOH, this produced the vinaceous stains.

Adding some micro details -

First micro-shot is of a gill at 100x in KOH. Here the gill stains vinaceous in the KOH.

The second micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 400x in KOH. Here the spores are hyaline, and do not stain in KOH.

So, the gill tissue stains vinaceous in KOH in this species, and this can be seen both macro- and micro-scopically. The spores do not stain in KOH, are just hyaline.
