General Description:

“A slightly bitter taste when raw, just like Indigo. After multiple sources confirmed the mushroom as edible (including Arora, whom I frequently trust my life to) we went ahead and pan-fried with butter and garlic, and it’s a pretty tasty mushroom. I would consider it easily the equal of L. Indigo, which is more appealing-smelling and pretty-colored than L. Volemus or Corrugis (Bradley/Weeping Milkie), but slightly less tasty and MUCH less meaty. Just so you know.”
