Observation 13396: Laccaria amethystina Cooke

When: 2008-11-01

Collection location: Bossy, Switzerland [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found in mixed forest of oak and spruce.

These are slight different from the ones I’ve seen on the east coast, where those were more even purple everywhere. These have a brown stipe, with most of the purple in the pileus. They are also hygrophanous and turn to brown when dry.
