Difficult to name a trait…

that will always separate L. nuda from any of a variety of Corts that resemble it. Some similar Corts have gills that are more widely separated, or gills that are more broadly adnate when young, or cap with a shiny/streaked sheen. Certainly, evidence of the cortina on either the stipe or cap margin is a give-away. Young blewits often show a hoary sheen on the stipe. But there are so many Corts that potentially look like blewits.

Actually, I wonder about the one with in this obs with the stipe proportionally longer than the cap diameter.
