A little Blewit caution

These were right next to each other. There was a small flush of the Cortinarius amidst a bigger flush of Lepista.

One is great in a white sauce, the other might shackle you to the toilet for a couple of days!

Nice comparison! Still not one I'd be comfortable picking yet and this is why. I appreciate the pics. Someday, however...

found the same thing in my yard a few yrs ago Ed. Only discovered after I had dried some, so tossed the whole bunch.

After talking to miker and explaining the type cort it was, he told me that they were safe, but that i did the right thing in tossing. better safe than on the crapper, or worse. LOL

Re: A little Blewit caution

Sorry not to hijak your thread, but this does relate. btw, excellent photos!

I have noticed that we get two different blewits, one tends to be real purply or lilac and is usually in deciduous only while the other is in mixed woods and usually has a soft brown or buff cap, while the stalk and gills are lilac to purple. I believe the later is called woodland blewit, while the other is just called blewitt. I have also noticed that some books label either clytocybe nuda and some lepista nuda?

Can someone clear up this confusion.

Lepista nuda has now benn moved to the clitocybe family, thus clitocybe nuda is the name, and you are correct on two species of blewits, you have clitocybe nuda and clitocybe saeva,mike

Wood blewit vs. field blewit. I had no idea. Thanks Miker. I always just assumed the coloration differences had to do with age and freshness. I bet I have thrown out some very nice field blewit specimens in the past.

Re: A little Blewit caution

Does anyone have pics of sporeprints of blewits & corts that they can post ? I've seen some pics of corts that look more like the wood blewit. Tan tops & lavender gills. I know the sporeprint for blewits are suppose to be white-pinkish. Some say buff (beige,tan). I'd really like to see some pics of both. Mine came out beige-peach. Some might say dirty pink ??? colors can be confuseing sometimes.
