On the other hand, image 101587 (of a different specimen found fairly close by on the same date) does clearly show a pinkish gill color. Thanks for pointing out the significance of that.

the pinkish decurrent gills, inrolled cap margin, splotchy cap, (tough to describe, almost like water marks) odor
