I revisited the topic as promised.

Yes, it’s L.trullisata. While many authors place this species either on Eastern Seaboard or on shores of Great Lakes (this place is about 70 miles from the nearest shore as the bird flies), Wisconsin Mycological Society foray took place here in 2015 and it was confirmed by knowledgeable members of the group to be that species. (Never mind my alleged spore print – 4 years ago I had hard time telling one gilled mushroom from another, even if they were in different families :(

, Wisconsin, big bulky Laccaria with purple gills, colored cap and stipe (not like L. ochropurpurea… all sounds good for L. trullisata

OK, OK -rub it in.

I don’t think I had as much to drink while posting this, but s#$% happens. I will definitely revisit this topic in the future – get a specimen, photograph and spore-print it etc. As far as this observation – the first gill shot belongs to the top two pictures, and the second one to the second pair (they were found apart in different places). Yes, plenty of sand, pines and oak. Around here it’s called pine barrens.

(at least – probably all) are Laccaria, so maybe check the spore deposit again. Maybe a mixup like the Mycena issue

Also, L. trullisata is well-distributed around the Great Lakes to the eastern seaboard, so it’s not out of the question that it occurs at your spot… Was there a lot of sandy soil and pine?

Well, I revisited the place and re-found the mushroom. Spore print is dark brown with hints of rust. Obviously not Laccaria trullisata. I had a feeling the latter didn’t belong here. But this mushroom is pretty common here – I have photos from at least two locations.

L. trullisata shouldn’t be growing here

But I couldn’t find a better match.
