about 2cm in diameter, growing at the base of a limestone wall with Elder. Not the best of photos as it was the only one growing.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
nice one - ta.
What's the best way to differentiate between this and an Amethyst deceiver (Laccaria amethystea), which i probably would have id'd this as?
(Due to small size, shaded location at base of vegitation, slight greying of cap and shape of cap)
You are right that this is a particularly small specimen for L nuda which would normally be 5-10 cm. The easiest way to tell the difference is to look at the gills. With Laccaria they are widely spaced and adnate-decurrent and Lepista has much more crowded gills which are emarginate.
Another pointer is the greasy look to the cap which is more in keeping with Lepista.
I will post a photo of both.
