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.
Yep most of them look like Lepista nuda, the short fat ones might be slightly questionable but as you know they can be quite variable so they probably are the same.
Have you ever found some of the exciting purple Cortinarius that can look superficially rather like Lepista, I tend to regard some of the Cortinarius as the orchids of the fungal world - often rare and exciting to find.
I haven't seen any of the purple Cotinarius in the field, but I agree some are remarkably similar looking to Lepista nuda, especially Bruising Webcap, C.pupurescens. I would love to find C.terpsichores, which is an exciting shade of bright violet, but it's pretty rare. Although, I find even some of the more common species are very pretty to photograph, especially Verdigris agaric and Fly agaric.
