Hypholoma sublateritium can be spectacular, bright purple with day-glo yellow veil. Other Hypholomas and yellow Pholiotas also are nice.

some of the Russula species also do some crazy fluorescense…

we had a demo of this at a Wildacres foray a few years back.
it takes that one obsessive mushroomer to bring a black light to a foray, though.

is black light on genera other than Cortinarius?

Thanks Drew

I know what you mean. Every so often I find a Telamonia that seems to only have a purple sheen when I look sideways at it.

To me it appears as a watery brownish-grey with the barest hint of amethyst.

Nice shot!

Is there a little bit of purple-amethyst tone over the upper stipe?
