Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found and id’ed by others at the SFSU/Berkeley/Davis weekend.

Gills only show a hint of purple in the brown color of the gills here, these were photographed the next morning after they were found. When found the purple in the gills was quite distinct. The color of the caps is close, but darker than P. olivacea, but the gills, although mostly brown here, are still a very different color than what is seen in P. olivacea.
