Salmon 'Shroom

Can anyone help me identify this small mushroom? I had never seen this type before. I was out with my camera and almost stepped on these tiny little 'shrooms. I am so glad I didn't! Their pink "salmon" hue stood out enough for me to stumble over them and then proceed capture their photograph before continuing on my way.

  1. Sorry I can't help you with the name, but it's a pretty one!

  2. No, but a great shot!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. Pretty, but wouldn't partake without extensive research.

  4. No idea but what a lovely mushroom!
    A Perfect capture!

  5. Sorry I've never seen one like it before - but it's beautiful!

  6. So pretty! Glad you didn't step on it:)

  7. They sure are pretty little things!

  8. Wow! Lush color ~ great photo for 'S' ~ (A Creative Harbor)

  9. Great shot! I love fugi. Think it might be a Russula.

  10. I have no idea, but I wouldn't eat it! lol Unless you want to "shroom" off into the sunset!

  11. I dunno what kind of shrooms they are, but they're cute - maybe they're baby Amanita's...don't eat 'em!

  12. No idea too but I love the photo!

  13. No help from me, but I love the photo - great color!

  14. Completly ignorant concerning mushrooms, but yours looks beautiful!

  15. It could be in the Russula family..although I don't know if those grow in Oregon. I love that you found one though. I'm a fellow Oregonian living in The Netherlands and they have the most amazing mushrooms here..including the fairytale tpe ones..the red caps with the white dots. I just love them!

  16. Usually mushrooms with brilliant colors are a warning.
    So pretty but perhaps not so pretty if ingested.

  17. Oh my that is so beautiful, as if a plastic toy! Do you know if maybe it can be eaten, it looks yummy! I haven't seen any color of 'shroom here other than brown, white or black, nothing like that at all.

  18. Calling by from the ABC Wednesday photo meme, I recently posted on various mushrooms. However I did not find any so brightly coloured, I think the colour means it is poisonous.

  19. I love this color!

    Hooray, I finally get my PC back so I am playing catch up with all of the S entries this week.
