You’ve got me thinking about this one. Young tight buttons like these can be misleading. Plumbeoviolaceus is not a species that I know very well. The trail where I found these is one of my favorite collecting areas in Hickory Run. Hope to find more and look at some spores.

I’m on thin ice on this one. What points me to T. violatinctus is the lack of contrasting color of the cap and stem.

Walt, can you point out anything…

about this one that suggests violatinctus? I had thought the dark color matched with plumbeoviolaceus.

Difficult to get spores from tight buttons like these.

Mixed woods without oak; mainly birch, maple, hemlock, and some beech.
