is not a bad guess. I think many, if not most, americans still use that genus name for the Lepista species, and it’s not always easy to see where they belong.

Very pale blue/lavender fruitbodies (paler than Lepista nuda), pink spores and a smell of menthol, should be enough to identify Lepista glaucocana.

I just took a stab at it, guess I missed the spot. I would trust your opinion more than mine Irene.

I really need to expand my knowledge of mushrooms, I only know a decent amount about the genera Amanita, Gymnopilus, Psilocybe, and Panaeolus.

…and no people I do not study the genera I mentioned because of there “magic” properties, they’re just the fungi I encounter the most.

Looks a lot like Lepista glaucocana.
