Observation 54084: Lepista nuda (Bull.) Cooke
When: 2009-09-29
(45.803398° -77.14222° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I saw these clustered near rotting wood in Zone 34 (mixed w/ mature aspen) and thought they might be Pluteus. I flipped one over and saw pinkish gills, but attached, even somewhat decurrent. It now occurs to me that these may be Lactarius but I never checked for latex. The scrobiculate stipe of the upper left specimen also suggests Lactarius, but the thin flesh and fibrous looking parts of that damaged stipe suggest maybe not. I leave it as Fungi sp. for now.

generally lose all of the purple and fade to a tannish or very pale color; tan especially when waterlogged.

Think so?

There’s no hint of purple in these ones.
