This was the only time when my backyard was filled with Laccaria. I never saw them before or since. If they pop up again I will be sure to document them more thoroughly.

Also, from what I’ve read about L. maritima it has only been found in eastern Canada. I have only found a few decent photos of this species online but it seems similar. I’m just not sure this location is sandy enough for them.

in North America. It would have been nice to see the gills and stipe base.

I agree. It doesn’t seem to have the same characteristics I’ve been seeing in other L. trullisata specimens.

should have at least some violet tones to it and scalier cap.
