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.
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.
