Why not Lepista nuda?

I discused this with Danny Miller and he told me that he has never seen Lepista nuda growing on a kitchen sponge. Unfortunately, he does not have a voucher specimen and thus cannot prove me wrong. Could it be some other Lepista species?

What substrate!

I can’t remember…

…what microscopy I did last year to convince myself that these admittedly rather centrally stiped specimens were indeed D. horizontalis. I wish I’d saved them or took better notes.

Thanks, Danny!

I’m glad this lives here on MO now. It was an exciting thing to find amidst my random google image search results. I wonder a bit about your determination of D. horizontalis based on the stipe morphology. Do you still have this collection? Got any more wacky indoor things to post?
