Atypical Tricholompsis rutilans or something else?

The purple on the stem and a slight bit of purple on the cap leads me to T.rutilans but not 100%. A beautiful mushroom, even if a bit dried out.

Hi Adam,

It would be atypical in its habitat too.

You don't mention habitat/substrate, but from the photos, it looks to be deciduous.

I assume it was attached to buried wood of some sort? (It looks as though it's directly in soil).

I've only ever found T.rutilans growing as would be expected, from dead (generally quite rotten) Pine or Spruce.

I believe it has been recorded on deciduous wood, but very infrequently.

Have you / are you doing any microscopy on it?

Regards,
Mike.

Its growing in an area of felled Larch (2-3 years ago), now occupied by birch and willow. I'm doing a spore print and will check keys tomorrow.

Ah! - In that case you're probably spot on. ;)

Although, if it turns out not to be T.rutilans, with those colours showing, I wouldn't like to hazard a guess a to what it might be. :)

Regards,
Mike.

Spores subglobose 5-7 x 5-6.5µm which is a perfect match for T.rutilans.

So Mike was correct - the habitat was deciduous :lol: :lol:
