since this court had a huge bulb. it was also viscid.

purple cap tones would be unusual for glaucopus group. I don’t really see any blue tones in the gills, either, other than a possible photo color transfer from that purple stipe. no blue at gill edges, and the transient gill color is not gray, either.

w/out a specimen, it’s all guesswork.

I would consider C. subolivascens, as the cap coloring looks spot on for that. But November is the most unlikely time. Also I don’t know if it ranges that far south.

Bulbipodium was swallowed by Phlegmacium long ago, so is no longer recognized as valid.
