I agree about that they are curious, I have some drying next to me awaiting microscopy. Maybe that will clear it up.

well, for starters, I somehow mistook this for an observation of Alan’s from Mexico, so I was erring on the side of caution in applying North American/European names. now that that brain fart has passed, I rescind my hesitation.

all the same, those purple tones are curious…

What makes you think its not Xeromphalina cauticinalis? I’m wondering what I could be missing?
