IMO, the coolest part of this sighting is the fact of a multitude of fungi appearing on Bill’s picnic table! Or are those just staged shots in an aesthetic tableau?

Darn, that’s not nearly so interesting.

Happy New Year fungus fans everywhere. Keep on observing and sharing.

are lacmus and subviolaceus conspecific?

The Lodge et al study 2013 suggests that lacmus and subviolaceus may not be conspecific. If that holds up then I’m inclined to agree with Noahs’ suggestion that subviolaceus is a better choice for eastern North America. This mushroom is not very common but it does turn up in the Fall in Conifer woods in CT are a somewhat annual basis.

Amazing how many mushrooms turn up here

But the habitat looks extremely strange :-)
