Observation 142013: Hygrocybe purpureofolia (H.E. Bigelow) Courtec.
When: 2013-08-07
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Cap 4 cm brown slick slightly umbel like with a small crack at the center.
gills violet attached to the stem close and wavy
Stipe brown flatten 3 cm tall. Small white line where gills and stem meet
found growing under maple Red oak and American Beech
growing in small bunches forming a small arc
Spore print is unattainable at this time but with little bit i did get it appears white. Will try again later

This guy looks very much like a Laccaria of some sort. The closet I can come up with is L.fraterna http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/4280?q=1PoHi BUT that is an Australian variety so I don’t think so. My other thought it was a Hygrocybe of some sort.
