Some kind of Lepista ?
    #3206878 - 10/02/04 03:38 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

found these mushrooms beside the path in the woods growing in moss:

The cap had a light lila color and the diameter of them was about 10 centimeter:


Also the gills had a light lila color and were free:


The stem was hollow:


And the spore print is like this (flesh colored?):


First I thought it could be Lepista nuda, but they did not smell so 'sweet' as nuda do.
In one of my mushroom books there was a picture of Lepista glaucocana and they look very similar.
Also the fact that I have found them in a higher altitude (800 meters above sealevel) could be a sign that they are really glaucocana.

Any hints ?

They look like Lepistas, all right. The spore print color for Lepistas is described as pale pinkish tan.

Lepista is a satellite genus from Clitocybe, so you might be able to key them out better there in some books.

As far as odor, keep in mind that sometimes specimens will lack odor. I sometimes find Chanterelles that have no noticeable odor until they've been in a bag for a couple days.

The fact that they are purplish overall makes me suspect that you have Lepista nuda, without much odor.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks, I will have a look at the genus Clitocybe - maybe I find something there.
In some books it also says that Lepista glaucocana is only a variety of Lepista nuda (Lepista nuda var. glaucocana).
