    As much as I remember in the vacuoles of some plant cells. (I guess it depends on the family or the genus, I don't know) I'm not sure about fungi.
    It matters not how strait the gate

    'Betalain pigments are water-soluble vacuolar yellow (betaxanthins) and violet (betacyanins)
    pigments that replace anthocyanins in most plant families of the order Caryophyllales. They are
    also found in some species of the fungal genera Amanita and Hygrocybe.'
    There aren't simple solutions but, if you're luck, there are simple answers.
