Recognized by sight: Looks very similar to C. nuda and may, in fact, be that species, but the cap and especially the gills are much paler – almost no purple in the whitish-gray gills, hardly any purple at all.

In frequenting New Brighton often (literatly my backyard). I have seen various size, shapes and colorations, in different habitats, ect.. of what I would call bluewits. If it’s just a matter of coloration between the two species, well ok, or is there actually a difference in DNA? Or any other point to differ the two?

P.S. The commercially raised “bluewits/bluefoots” of Europe that I have seen are almost all white/tan even when young except at the base of the stipe? Can’t find any info on there exact taxa.
