Who: Eric (eozkan)

No specimen available

Collected this mushroom found growing in large clusters from sandy soil beneath a mature oak tree. Bronze colored cap, dense cap and stipe, salmon-colored spore print. Entoloma or Pluteus? Looks like Pluteus to me but have never seen it growing in clusters like this, also seems to be growing from soil, no indication of rotting wood on or beneath the surface. Would appreciate help with identification.


Salmon-colored spore print.
