Pileus 20-45(-50) mm broad, obtusely convex with an incurved margin when young, becoming planoconvex to plane or subumbonate with a decurved margin, occasionally uplifted and eroded at margin with age; surface glabrous, lubricous when young, fresh and moist, hygrophanous, even, translucent striate at the margin when aged or in wet weather, reddish brown to violet brown when young, fading to light brown or cinnamon brown eventually overall; context 5-10(-14) mm thick, white to pale watery gray; taste and odor mild or absent. Lamellae adnexed to nearly free, close or crowded, thin, moderately broad (up to 7 mm), white, developing a slight pinkish cast with age; edges wavy or straight to uneven, rarely pubescent, becoming eroded or laciniate with age. Stipe 30-60(-70) mm long, 4-10 mm broad at the apex, clavate, sometimes pinched at the base, fibrous to brittle; surface moist in wet weather, otherwise dry, striate to sulculate, sometimes whitish fibrillose at the base, buff to pinkish buff overall at first, or concolorous with the pileus toward the base and pallid above when young, becoming cinnamon brown with age, whitish at base below substrate level; interior white, pithy when young, soon hollow and spongy.

Wonderful shot - I really like this.

Wonderful tones, great composition and a love the feeling of wet and damp.

I don't know Felipe, maybe a splash of red paint would look good there... Even purple!!
No, super shot showing us the damp mushrooms and the wonderful compost... Another very interesting image for us. I learn a lot from your photos - thank you

Really a superb one! Shiny and vivid, what a beauty! i like your frame a lot also. This is a great idea that using long exposure, how can you get that idea :-)
Only i can say, BRAVO!!!

btw, i don't know about the id too, but if you find any info, let me know :-)

Hi Felipe!

Very wet photo :-) I don't know ID, but one thing is sure - they're very nice looking fungi, also common in Poland [at least ones which look the same :-)]. Composition with dried, brown oak [?] leaves looks superb. Black and white border of frame is my favourite postprocessing trick from you :-) I hope you'll finally ID these nasty fungi my friend :-)

Sugerentes hongos los que presentais, como mi inglés no es muy fluido, y como el mundo de la micologia tampoco es que sea lo mio, no os puedo ayudar en la identificación, lo que si os puedo decir es que es una gran foto.
Un saludo nuevamente.

Hi Felipe,
Nicely captured.
Great shot.

Hola Felipe y Cristina,
Otra muestra espectacular de tu amor por las setas. Me sorprende la variedad que encontrais.
Me maravilla el aspecto gelificado que tienen al estar mojado.
Los detalles , la luz y la composición son como es habitual en vuestras fotos, de primera categoría.
Saludos desde Sudamérica

Hi Felipe,
I know the feeling of having a common fungi that you can never ID :) You should be able to narrow down your seach with a spore print. From memory only Entoloma and Pluteus species have pink spores. Nice photo with good colour, POV and DOF

Hi Felipe,

As usual, you have capture a nice fungi friend here. I wonder if the reflation was from the sky at very early in the morning?

Nice wet-looking fungi amongst the oak leaves (thanks Greg for the leaf ID). 3 secs is a long exposure, but teh results are nice.

This winter has been hopelss for fungi here, to dry, not enough rain. Only a few specimens found including the lilac one I posted last week.

Hopefully spring and early summer will produce more specimens.

TFS, Chris

Hi Felipe and Cristina,
even if I can't see the colour of spore print, I think it is Rhodocollybia butyracea (Bulliard 1792) Lennox 1979, so it must have white spore print. Its cap is very hygrophanous, so you can find it with a lot of colours. In old book you can find it with an abandoned old name, Collybia butyracea (Bulliard 1792) Fries 1887.

fantastic shot my friend,
great fungi shot, I know you are the master of the fungi and I say that with respect, very good job my friend.

Hola Felipe,
Preciosas texturas super-húmedas y de bellos tonos marrones que anticipan tu otoño. Me encanta el aspecto de las superficies de todo lo que se ve en la foto. Una composición muy buena.
Un saludo,
José M.
