I especially liked the photo of the horned cystidia!

Hard to say just what these Pluteus were growing from…found in grass, near pine and oak, but lots of woodchips too, from all sorts of dead wood (they chip what falls in the Park and spread it right there).

is that under a pine tree? perhaps on conifer wood?
