Lepiota sp. 1

Common Name: None

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground; Leaf litter

Location: Hardwood forest

Spore Color: White

Gill Color: White

Comments: 

I do not know of a good name for this mushroom. As with many Midwestern Lepiotas, there are very few good resources and names available. It is a small white, woodland Lepiota. What makes it interesting is that it bruises purplish when handled.

Lookalikes:

Lepiota sequoiarum is very similar but does not bruise.
