    It does not have to be a beech. This mushroom develops on the rotten wood of the broadleaf trees.
    Or was it on a softwood substrate?
    It is hard to tell from the photo.

    Lovely find @rocky9 !
    In south coastal BC region, mushrooms with this appearance and habitat are usually Marasmiellus candidus. It can vary from all white to pink.
