I went out hunting for chanterelles in my woods earlier but didn't really have any luck. I did find a small purple mushroom growing by itself at the base of an old dead tree. It was growing from the rotting wood material around the base. I'm pretty sure it's from the genus laccaria but I could not make a positive identification. I'm waiting on a spore print now. Also, the gills are pretty closely packed and are also purple. When I removed the cap for printing I noticed the stem was solid and the flesh inside was purple as well. I live on the east coast. Anyone know what this might be?
I found several mushies that look like that in my woods by a creek last week. They looked more like urs and less like the others posted. Maybe they are a different species then laccaria. Mine where more of a dark purple tho.
