Notes: Widespread and common here in S.W. Ontario each Fall, Clitocybe nuda or Lepista nuda is an excellent edible and can be found in large prolific quantities each Fall. Fruiting in a variety of environments including leaf and needle duff, compost piles etc.
Commonly referred to as the Blewit, this tasty mushroom fills multiple baskets for me each year.
