Gomphidius subroseus

Cortinarius husseyiKey to Gilled Mushrooms     Key
This is a key to gilled mushrooms, that is, mushrooms having a definite cap with a fertile surface consisting of gills. The fruiting body usually also has a stem, although that may be lateral or absent (usually, then, the mushroom is growing from wood). You can use this key to identify mushrooms that you find.

TricholomaAgaricales     Order
Fruiting body containing fibers (usually in the stalk)

Gomphidius glutinosusGomphidiaceae     Family
Spore print smoky-olive to black
Gills very decurrent, becoming smoky in age from developing spores
Cap typically slimy, or at least viscid
Under conifers only

Gomphidius glutinosusGomphidius     Genus
Flesh (and gills, before they become colored by developing spores) white to greyish
Stalk typically yellow at the base (in one case it can be pinkish at the base)

Gomphidius glutinosusExtra-slimy Gomphidius     Section
Slimy partial veil present in young fruiting bodies, leaving the stem viscid in mature fruiting bodies
This veil often leaves a slimy ring on the stalk, which becomes black as falling spores collect on it
