Observation 187932: Laccaria Berk. & Broome

Habitat: Ground

I thought that this mushroom was the bee’s knees, but then after a two months, I think this is just old… :/

It has a depression in the middle which is open and shows the stipe, Dark tan flesh of the pileus. Brown edged pilues color. The covering is loosely associated to flesh.

Adnate gills that to me seen tan with a slight lilac hue with 3 lengths.

Stipe is pubescent, central, and equal. No volva or annulus.

White spore print as well as ornamented circular spores.

(If any of these characteristics are distinctive please let me know, like the loose covering or lilac colored gills)

Recognized by sight: Irregular thick distant pink to purple gills are a good hint for Laccaria. White ornamented spores help too. The gill “lengths” are referred to as “tiers”.
