After finding another sample substrate has been confirmed to be dung. Was unable to find a suitable specimen for printing but I am very confident that the print colour would be purple due to the colouring that can be seen on the gills.

Looks like it might be dark spored by looking at the gills. The ring looks orange though….well maybe a tint of purplish there too.

I am wondering if Limecella could be possible this seems to be the closest I can find at the moment.

these are very odd. I was just looking at this observation.

Seemed to be directly from soil but I would imagine quite a bit of decomposed wood matter would have been present. If you notice the stipes seem to really narrow towards the top too, which I thought was a bit odd.

Were these growing from wood or soil? The glutinous stipes are really cool. The only genus I can think of is Pholiota but I don’t think that’s right.
