Purple Mushrooms Growing in My Yard
    #2968067 - 08/05/04 03:27 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

There are two species of mushrooms growing in my yard, but I'm only concerned with one because this is the first year I've seen it in my yard.

The mushrooms are about 1 - 1 1/2 inches tall (including the cap). The caps are about 1 1/2 - 2 inches in diameter, and are of a purple-burgundy color. The stalks are pink and are about 1/3 inch in diameter. One of the mushrooms was damaged, and I could see the stalk was milky white underneath the pink surface. If one were to split a cap in half, the same milky white color could be seen along the severed areas.

The mushrooms are growing on the south side of an oak tree in a fairly dry area of the lawn. A pine tree is nearby, and the sun shines on them frequently throughout the day. I believe they appeared only a couple days after some rain storms swept through the area (Central Wisconsin).

Might anyone know what these are?

If they're secreting a milky white fluid, then they belong to the genus Lactarius.

They are not lactating, they just appear milky white when split.

:rolleyes:

I'd like to provide photos, but I don't have a camera.

Whatever is growing in my yard isn't cortinarious traganus. The caps on CTs are much larger and the coloration is far too faded to be what I'm looking at.

They almost look like clitocybe nuda.
