Tricholomopsis rutilans (NL: Koningsmantel / EN: Plums and Custard, Red-haired agaric / DE: Purpurfilzige Holzritterling, Rötliche Holzritterling / FR: Tricolome rutilant, Pleurote rutilant) is a species of gilled mushroom found across Europe and North America. A striking and easily recognised fungus, Plums and Custard takes its common name from its plum-red scaled cap and crowded custard yellow gills. The flesh is cream-coloured and spore print creamy white. The base colour of the cap under the scales is yellow. The cap is convex and 4–10 cm across. The stipe is cylindrical and up to 10 cm tall with a red scaly base developing to a yellow colour towards the cap. It has no ring or volva.
