Observation 62093: Laccaria amethysteo-occidentalis G.M. Muell.

Found growing under conifers (fir). These dried specimens were among Laccaria amethysteo-occidentalis and Lactarius xanthogalactus. Also found one Lactarius rubidus nearby. They do not obviously resemble other dried Laccaria amethysteo-occidentalis and Lactarius xanthogalactus found nearby.

because I highly regard Alan’s observations and because of the proximity of these specimens to more obvious bunches of Laccaria amethysteo-occidentalis. The funny thing is that when you look at a batch of these next to a batch of the obvious Laccaria amethysteo-occidentalis, they give the strong impression of being a different breed, especially being more reddish everywhere and more wrinkled, ball-shaped dry caps. I have a bunch of each type drying on my cold dry garage floor and will see how they end up.

for sure. I see some lavender or lilac in the gills of a few.
