Pinkgill

Entoloma sp.

Description:

Gray-to blush capped mushroom with a slightly waxy surface and highly convoluted cap edges. Gills are attached and sinuate with many alternating short and long gills forming a wavy pattern. At some angles the gills can look like long teeth over the stipe. Stipe is thick, white with gray/blush undertones, and striated. Spore print is light ochre with hints of pink/peach. Entolomas are typically pink-gilled and account for around 1000 known species of fungi. They are typically saprobes of leaf litter but have also been seen with mycorrhizal associations.

Habitat:

Growing in grass and pine needles in a field (with many pines nearby) in Northwest Georgia (Floyd County), US.
