Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Thanks for this. Are there any ID features in particular that give you a clue to it being Herald of Winter?
The pink decurrent gills and the yellowy look to the stem are characteristic. There is often a pink band at the top of the stem. It tends to arrive after the first frosts of the year.
That's very helpful. It's a new one for me to learn.
