Georeference Remarks: lat/long = center of Highlands, 2013

Description: Good spore prints of this plant show that there is much pink in the spores -- so much so that we turn first to the pink group for determination. Lighter parts of the prints are pinkish-buffy and darker parts are light pinkish-cinnamon. [illegible] This species should be keyed under both the pink-spored and ochre-spored groups.
