  1. Possibly a Russula xerampalina. It is extremely variable in color. I have seen it in red, wine, tannish, and even greenish. Before looking at the actual fungus, I thought it may be Cortinarius iodes.

  2. Neat 'shroom. Oddly enough after I saw it here it also appeared in the AT Journey's magazine that I get. Very cool!

  3. Almost definitely a Russula xerampalina. The other species, Russula brunneoviolacea, is the only other contender for this photo in my mind, but it doesn't usually show a pitted cap. Did it smell like shrimp? Did the stem break like a piece of chalk?
