Hidden in the small gap between two root legs. Tree was a maple. Environment is predominantly hardwood trees, oak, ash, and maple. base larger than cap. Gills a delightful color of lavender. Stem also has streaks of lavender inside. Will post a pic of the spore print as soon as one appears.


Just a wonderful lavender color on the gills.
