Who: Tom Volk (TomVolk)

No specimen available

Just in case you thought all Plueus species were boring, this lovely yellow one comes along. It’s not very big (1-2 cm caps), but often fruits in abundance. Note the bright yellow color and the pink free gills.

Your yellow pluteus wins best of show! Altho we do have a couple of pretty multi-colored pluteus here in the West, nothing like your show-stopper.
