Found and id’ed by others at the SMG meeting.
This one was interesting to see, esp. compared to the various purple Hygrophorus from California. This one by stature was different from any of those, with the stipe so even, the gills are small and tight. The purple colors were fairly streaky on the stipe, so I thought this was H. russula, but the purple is fairly blotchy on the cap, so that is more like H. erubescens. I couldn’t with my bad French, get accross the question, was this found under oaks, or conifers? Another aspect here, is that there isn’t any evidence of yellow patches. Anyway, I found this one interesting, not sure if there is enough to say this is clearly a different species from what can be seen in California, or if some species has enough of a clearly different form between places.
