Collection location: Beaver Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Bob Zuberbuhler (Bob Z)

No specimen available

A medium to large mushroom found on the ground in a stand of Norway spruce and in grass bordering this stand. I thought this might be one of the large infundibulocybes, but the gills are definitely not decurrent.

I see the purple coloring.

@walt, the cap usually fades far more so then cap and stems, I would expect to see some purple on a specimen of that age, after the cap has become completely white maybe less so.

Fade as the caps age. Abundant rain may be a factor as well. We had the entire spectrum at our OMS foray this weekend.

I’ve added two photos that more clearly show the purple tinge on the cap and gills.

I am seeing no purple on either the stem or gills, why do you think this is Clitocybe nuda?
