Description

Transcribed from handwritten notes:

Pyrogallol and guaiacol negative oncap.

Pileus 18-57 mm across, up to 36 mm tall.
Tightly round-convex to campanulate-umbilicate.
Cap often contorted and wavy, some strongly crenulate or splitting at margin. Deep vinaceous ruby red becoming grapefruit red or pink over buff-beige pink background.

Extremely finely tomentulose at disc, when very young (nearly smooth). With small but distinct scales outwards and irregularly in age. Scales not or barely uplifted, but not entirely appressed.

Stipe 24.9 to 43 to 50 mm tall. 4.2 to 8.3 to 9.6 mm wide. Equal or slightly enlarged at base, often mostly hidden by drooping cap.

Often strongly grooved or flattened. Not entirely smooth (ie. vertically fibrous), with white punctae or scurfs in some specimens. Pale flesh colored, pinkish cream, or pallid rosy pink. Basal mycelium abundant, rising up to 1/2 stipe. White, not contiguous.

Lamellae pale creamy pink becoming pinker in age, and with vinaceous staining at maturity. Edge somewhat eroded even when fresh and with transvenose lamellulae. Close, irregular, deep.
