Rare Pink by Carla Wick/Jandelle Petters

The Netted Rhodotus, or Rhodotus palmatus, is the only member of it’s family. It is completely unique in so many ways…..and hard to find!
A rare beauty that is found in Kansas, USA more then any other location in the US….I always feel extremely blessed to find them.
This was found back in Sep. of 2012…..not sure why I never posted these.
They have a beautiful fruity smell to them…have a pale pink spore…pink gills…pink cap……….BUT..have a golden color ‘juice’ that comes out of the stem. The caps wrinkle when subjected to a wet/dry/wet/dry type of condition which gives it’s name Netted as it crinkles up into a net-like pattern.

    wow! Carlita, this it gorgeous! a great find for sure. the pattern is beautiful. I’m jealous now. lol

  • Kansas is just crawling with this species! Don’t know why it likes my neck of the woods so much but I keep an eye out just for them and squeal in delight with each new find. Wish I could send to you when I DO find but they wouldn’t survive the travel. :o(
