Observation 13396: Laccaria amethystina Cooke
When: 2008-11-01
Collection location: Bossy, Switzerland [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in mixed forest of oak and spruce.

These are slight different from the ones I’ve seen on the east coast, where those were more even purple everywhere. These have a brown stipe, with most of the purple in the pileus. They are also hygrophanous and turn to brown when dry.
