Re: How to distinguish between Lepista nuda and L. sordida

Thank you Adam - I am considering the smell as a good character too. The Maltese sordida are always a bit more robust than the norm. but maintaining the brownish tones of the pileus in wet conditions.

Re: How to distinguish between Lepista nuda and L. sordida

The size is within the range of both, but admittingly in the median of nuda and higher end of sordida: cap 75mm across; height 42mm; stipe: 9mm; lamella 6.5mm wide.

NUDA: not very distinctive, rather delicate, weakly flower like when fresh, slightly unpleasant when crushed.
SORDIDA: weak, often with aromatic component, sometimes more or less cyanidic or slightly rancid.
Is it sordida the flour-fungoid smell and nuda the aromatic ???

I hav...

Re: Physarium globuliferum ?

Hi, for the benefit of visitors of this forum, I wish to write that this was finally determined as Physarum leucophaeum where the closely related P. globuliferum was excluded because it should have an indistinct but yet detectable flat conical columella and a characteristic persistent capillitium. I...
