Gerhard, do you have more detailled informations about the bacteria in the stipe base of C. virgineus f. roseipes or a literature hint about this phenomenon? Thanks in advance.

and I do not get why people still cling to this “forma roseipes” which is nothing but bacteria beginning to decompose the stipe from the base on. This taxon should be abandoned.
