Observation 13141: Inocybe (Fr.) Fr.
When: 2008-10-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: 4 factors bother me about this identification, which is based mostly on the purple gills. 1) cap has distinct scales 2) gills have white edges 3) stipe is quite scaley. 4) whitish scales under cap.

This appears to be an unnamed species of Inocybe, which is mentioned in Aurora under I. Calamistrata on p. 462. He notes: “a very robust, unidentified local speciees with a dark brown scaly cap and several zones of concentrically-arranged dark brown scales on the stem (cap 5-12 cm broad, stalk 0.5-1.5 cm thick!).”
