Notes: found in a mix forest. Growing on the ground. Had a definite purple hue to the gills and a cross section of the stem showed that same purple hue on the outside and white core on the inside. Spore print in the works.

to spark a debate regarding the ID of this mushroom. But when someone seeks to learn an ID of a mushroom commonly listed as “choice edible”, I think it’s prudent to provide relevant details. Michael’s level of confidence here was “promising”, indicating some level of uncertainty. I have seen examples of Cortinarius where little or no sign of the cortina remains and spore color is not immediately observable. My recommendation to check spore print color here was meant to provide encouragement to the collector to gain a better understanding of Clitocybe nuda, and some of the similar Corts.
And no rusty brown coloration of stem or gills puts this solidly into Clitocybe nuda. The pink spore print is just icing.
about the C. nuda ID, then a spore print will help to separate from genus Cortinarius.
pinkish when dried.
