Observation 222083: Lepista nuda (Bull.) Cooke
When: 2015-11-06

Notes: Found on lawn near conifer trees of unidentified type (as of this time). The lawn also had mushrooms growing in a fairy ring that I have yet to identify. The lawn was very thick with grass and well-manicured. The spore print was white with perhaps the palest of pinkish hues.


Seem to find them regularly in flushes every 2-4 days scattered or in fairly close (within inches) groups of 2-4. Over the past month.
iridescent white appearance on stipe that disappears after having been touched.
They looked so happy… (just for fun)
This is a group of these mushrooms I have been saving and drying for varying times between approximately 1 week and 2 weeks.
These are grouped by when they were found on four separate instances. The freshest is on the top left and the oldest/driest on the bottom right.
This is a side by side of a freshly picked Lepista Nuda next to an approximately two week old drying specimen (on the right) which has paled tremendously.
