The flooding pattern

may be a factor. This was a pretty wet time in a flood plain area. I found the tight clusters in areas where large volumes of leaflitterand and soil settled. This leaf litter/soil mix holds moisture very well. (One theory maybe?)

clearly fits, from the purplish cap to the lighter hymenium. For lack of a better candidate, “I’d call it that” too. I wonder if the tree symbiote influences fruiting patterns or something.

Thank you!

This was a first find for me but I’m pretty confident in the ID. There were several large sized mushrooms growing singularly but many were tightly clustered.

Really cool!

I’ve never seen them growing in clusters like that. I wonder if this isn’t something different (or maybe what I’ve been calling C. lewisii isn’t something different).
