No specimen available

Terrestrial near Red Oak. The photos don’t show the true coloration of the caps which were lavender or lilac, plane with a central depression and slightly yellowish over the disc. Actually the caps was slightly lighter than the gills. Margin incurved to decurved. Gills adnexed to emarginate, close to crowded, pinkish lilac. Stipe short gray-white, and ridged with lilac colorations, thin near apex with a cleft base and hollow; possibly due to the large amounts of larvae present in the cap and stipe. No spore print produced.

It was infested with larvae so I threw it away once I recorded my obs. Perhaps, after some rainfall I may find another in this area.

Phil, do you still have this?

If you smash-mount a piece of gill in KOH, then you should be able to find some spores.
