Another Milkcap?

By flowerpower59
Thanks to those who commented, voted and awarded my last image. I am grateful.
Got down and dirty again today. It's just so beautiful in the woods at this time of year. This was the colour you see (I hope)....dusky pinky violet. It looks much like the last ones (i.e it has gills....I haven't a clue really) which were apparently rufous milkcaps, but a completely different colour and found in different conditions i.e no conifers in sight. Google isn't helping with this one. Ideas anybody?

Great photo. I'm no expert, I could be wrong but I think this could be a waxcap called Ballerina.

Such a beautiful image. Perhaps an amethyst deceiver?

You could be right. I see they grow in mixed oak and beech woodland which was where we found it.

Amethyst deceiver was my first thought, as purple fungi are few and far between, then I read Phil's post. The purple does fade when they get older like this.

I suspect an Amethyst Deceiver too Fiona. The caps start concave and go convex with age. Colour fades and the location seems right.

A fabulous find Fiona - we had a fungi lover in our club - we couldn't believe some of the coloured fungi he found - so very well done.

Lovely !
Mushroom time here too. Found quite a few ceps already and it's gong to be a fine day tomorrow, so an early start !
