You're absolutely right, Michel - many thanks for correction. I didn't feel too comfortable with my ID to be honest.

Beautiful indeed, though I think the mushroom on display is Lycogala epidendrum, rather than H. fuscum. L. epidendrum has various stages of colors, changing from orangy-pink to grey and eventualy it turns dark greybrown. The surface is also too smooth and soft to be H. fuscum, which has a more rusty appearence, both in color and feeling. I hope it has been of any help and please correct me if I'm wrong! gr,Michel.
