Observation 139074: Lepista sublilacina (Cleland) Grgur.
When: 2013-07-08
(-27.45° 153.1° 5m)
Who: Neil Ross
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Mauve/pink fungi found growing in moist garden mulch after a few days rain. Fungi scattered over an area no more than 1 m/sq. Well shaded by surrounding foliage for most of the day. The larger specimens of this spotting are 5-6 cms in diameter. Caps feel wax-like to touch and quite hard, and the edges are smooth and rounded. Also translucent in places, and the gills are reasonably large. The stems are smooth, although slightly grainy in appearance. Signs of feeding on caps, possibly by snails or slugs. Other caps much paler and greyer in colour and warped, possibly being older than the fresh pink fungi. This species of fungi appears to fade in sunlight, almost to the point of turning white.
