Mokruha pink

Pink mucus (Gomphidius roseus) has a 3-5 cm cap, convex, with a slimy skin, pink, later fading, yellowish in the middle, in old fruiting bodies with black-brown and black spots, in wet weather – mucous. The edge of the cap in old fruiting bodies is turned upwards. The hat, first with a quickly disappearing private veil, is tied to the leg. Later, a wavy ring remains from this bedspread on the leg. The plates are descending, thick, sparse. The stem is cylindrical, rather strong, sometimes tapering at the base. The plates are infrequent, wide and fleshy, branching at the base. The flesh is firm, with almost indistinguishable taste and smell, white, at the base of the leg it can be yellow. The spores are smooth, fusiform, 18-21 x 5-6 microns.

VARIABILITY The stem is white with a pink or reddish tinge at the bottom. The plates are initially white, but over time they acquire an ash-gray color. The pulp is sometimes pinkish in color.
