Description: Original observation #20013474 (iNaturalist)
Occurrence Remarks: Found in a forest next to an exposed root. Has a reddish pink top. Appeared to be about 3 inches tall. After walking about 2 feet away I came upon more of the same mushrooms. Because it was near a body of water and by a birch tree and the red top of mushroom this must be a birch brittlegill. The plant was found in the wetlands and woodland. The weather 77 degrees Fahrenheit, with 64% humidity. Partly cloudy and sunny. I saw this plant at 1:04 pm.
