Rowan Co., NC
Found alone, growing from soil, in mixed, predominantly hardwood, forest, near swampy/creek overflow area.
-Beech, Dogwood, Pine, Oak, Maple, and one other unidentified hardwood
3.2cm broad, convex to nearly plane with slight depression in center, somewhat smooth but slightly textured, creamy with gray hues, margin turned down
Flesh is creamy and more on the firm side.
Adnate to slight decurrent, close to subdistant, dark purple, some fork near stipe and some appear to have small, swollen vein-like protrusions (would this be called ventricose?)
7.8cm long, 1.2cm thick, white to cream with purple hues, textured with shaggy filaments, equal with slightly enlarged base, bruising purple where rubbed and cut
I couldn’t put a name on it, but the smell wasn’t very strong.
I thought this to be Laccaria ochropurpurea.
Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
