We'll need to know about spore print colors to identify those. Also, could you cut them in half vertically and let us know about gill attachment?

Happy mushrooming!

what color, what color, tell me what color!
i mean, what color are the spores (make a print- put the cap on a white piece of paper under a glass or bowl and wait 4-8 hours.)
look at a description of cortinarius species, then find a description of lepista (clitocybe) species. which does it resemble most? if you can take pictures, you should take several. good find. definitely not active, possibly deadly, maybe deliscious... funny thing, mushrooms.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Those are Lepista nuda.

These are the things you should see to verify this:
1. Cap dome shaped to flat, smooth, lilac with gray or tan tints, 2-6 inches wide.
2. Gills pale violet to pinkish brown, notched at stalk.
3. Stalk pale violet to brownish lilac, no ring, veil, or volva.
4. Spore print pale pinkish tan.

That description is from an excellent book, Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America, by David Fischer and Alan Bessette. I would add that the stem is often almost white.

Happy mushrooming!
