Description

The wrinkling on these caps seemed somewhat unusual for a pink-gilled, soil-growing mushroom and on closer inspection they are a not commonly seen Pluteus on soil. Cap velvety, wrinkled, colour is a warm-brown with cream-pink gills, 1.2-1.7 cm in diameter x 2-2.5 cm height. Stipe tan, smooth. Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
