most probably is E. roseum var. roseum.
Thanks again, AK_CCM.

because the pileus shows no grey-blue tinges near the margin which are mostly present at E. roseum var. catalaunicum. Furthermore this varietas growth in subalpine habitats with Pinus mugo or dwarf shrubs only, in western and northern europe also in poorly-manured lowland grasslands or in woods with Alnus, Betula, Picea – literature:

  • Ludwig, E. (2007): Pilzkompendium, Beschreibungen. Band 2. Fungicon, Berlin. ISBN 978-3-940316-01-1. p. 452-453.

What about the typus varietas: E. roseum var. roseum?

Thanks, AK_CCM, for you proposal.

This section Cyanula is still very complicated for me.
Some days after I found in the same location or close to it a more numerous ammount of specimens (that I will consider in a future observation). For the time being is the only place where I could find them.
I saw that there exist (at least) two varieties: marginatum (to which clearly my specimens do no belong) and catalaunicum (to which my specimens could belong). Are there any other(s)?
