the same 3 mushrooms remain in-situ for both photos, and these three look very much like Lepista nuda. Although, this is certainly not the first time that a Cort looked like a Blewit.

Interesting that you eat these purple Corts, Alejandro.

It is the same Cortinarius Dave

It was growing very close, just not close in off to make a good photo in my opinion. I have been seeing, collecting and sometimes eating this species for a few years, it is common in this area which is also familiar to me.

that the large one with the underside showing (second photo down) is the same species as the ones seen in-situ (both photos)?
