Notes: Possible Clitocybe nuda
4 – 9cm; smooth; purple-brown, purple fading to brown with drying; convex, becoming uplifted, umbilicate, to depressed; margin incurved, often oddly shaped, bordering on the grotesque; flesh off-white to lavender; some caps fused to nearby specimen’s caps.
2 – 6cm long, 1 – 2cm wide; enlarged below to bulbous; central; striated lavender and off-white, similar to flesh color; solid; less dense on inside than outside; odor distinct (reasonable to agree that it is reminiscent of frozen orange juice).
close to crowded; notched, some appearing slightly decurrent (difficult to tell where stipe ends and pileus begins); purple-grey, similar to streaks in flesh.
gregarious, or in small clusters; on forest debris under eucalyptus and deciduous trees; Central San Francisco, CA, December 4, 2012, after a week of strong rains, and average, low temperatures for the time of year.
