Silky pinkgill  Entoloma sericeum,Fall,Geotagged,Silky Pinkgill,United States Click/tap to enlarge PromotedSpecies introCountry intro

Varying from the palest shade of brown to the darkest, this grassland mushroom has one redeeming characteristic: its wonderfully silky cap is an aid to identification.

A delicate pinkgill is often seen in parkland and meadows, Entoloma sericeum is occasionally seen also on roadside verges. The caps are hygrophanous, and so the shade of brown depends very much on how wet or dry the weather has been.
