That’s a very nice lavender.

Which photo is best for the cap colors OTHER THAN lavender?

There are three lavender-staining “lavendulas” that are different species. A new discovery in the last few years. I can sort them by spores size/shape, and we’re looking for other characteristics that will help tell them apart without DNA sequencing.

I read your later post on a citrinoid amanita earlier today. I guess this is the photo to which you were “pointing” in the other post. That’s a neat shade of lavender.

Very best,
