L. bicolor doubtful
By: Joseph D. Cohen (Joe Cohen)

Laccaria bicolor seems doubtful because of lack of violet. See, e.g., Leathem & Didier, Key to LACCARIA species of the Pacific Northwest (2012), Trudell & Ammirati, Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest (Timber Press 2009). So this seems to key out to Laccaria lacata or something else in the Laccaria lacata group.
