Two types of fungi were growing on this fallen beech tree. -Carry Trail, Acadia National Park
Spore Print - white - slightly cream color.

1 - it doesn't bruise red
2 - The spore is not smooth.
The stipe is fibrous, white inside but slightly hollow and darker at the middle. It will probably hollow as it ages. The stipe broke in half when I bent it but didn't snap in two crisply.
The gills are white, detached and notched.
It was growing on the ground in mixed oak, other hardwoods and pine.

No significant smell noticed.
Veil remnants can be seen as patches on the cap. They were yellow and turned darker on the mature. The stem is light yellow.
The top of the cap could be peeled, inside flesh is white. No liquids coming out.
