Observation 44826: Pluteus cervinus (Schaeff.) P. Kumm.

This is what is interesting about his observation. I know just another Pluteus cervinus observation. This was found on a well rotting log next to a camp site that I frequently visit. Last year at this exact same spot I sorted about 20 Pluteus specimens threw them by the log. Today a year later there are 5 specimens coming from the log. So I picked out several other logs this year and placed some bits and pieces of them on the similar logs. So we will see what happens next year. Here is A bit of a description taken from 5 specimens

Spore print pink Stalk 1cm to 2 cm thick length 4 cm to 10 cm fiberouse solid tougher than the cap. Spores broadly elliptical smooth Non amyloid 5 to 8 microns.
