Collection location: Salt Point State Park, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]
Same critter that I collected last week, but in better shape. In same locale, too. Again, fruiting at the base of a tree.

Yeah, these do look Pluteus like, with the pinkish gills. But having seen the first collection, and knowing how chocolate brown the gills turn, the pink gills seem consistent with a younger collection.
Kinda like how Agaricus start out with pink gills that turn dark brown.
Really great to have a habitat shot this time!!
The gills can look pretty pink in youth, but in truth those spores are dark chocolate brown. I have an excellant collection, and they are on the dryer. They are yours for the asking, Erin. I am curious about this guy, maybe you and your fellow taxo folks can put a name to it!
