Recognized by sight: possibly A. bitorquis, but too old to tell, didn’t take it.

Recognized by sight: Veil is pendulous, not upward sheathing, robust stipe, brown cap… I know there are cypresses around there, which are the preferred habitat of A. lilaceps

wood chip bed under cypress, so that fits…

stalk quite firm still, base a bit bulbous, but perhaps that’s within the realm of possibility? I almost never see lilaceps…and have never seen it in the wild, so very little experience on this end (you Santa Cruzeans who frequently hunt the Monterey Peninsula have much more experience than I with this one!). Didn’t notice any reddening, but also didn’t try to bruise, slice, etc….very funky fruit body in a no-collect zone.

lilaceps seems like a best fit, altho no further investigation possible for this sighting.
