Entoloma strictius

 

Common Name: Twisted-Stalk Entoloma

Synonyms:

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: Pink

Gill Color: Whitish, then pinkish with age

Comments: 

First look for the terrestrial growth and the pink gills. This signals Entoloma. Next look for the golden brown cap and then a unique twisted pattern on the stem. It should have a candy-cane look to it, only with thinner bands and not two-toned.
