THERE IS A WORKSHOP with the bottom view.

Lepista nuda:

Cap 4-14 cm broad, convex, becoming nearly plane in age, margin inrolled, wavy, sometimes upturned at maturity; surface smooth, moist, violet to lilac, fading to tan; flesh soft, pale-lilac; odor fragrant, taste mild.

Gills adnexed, notched to subdecurrent, close, moderately broad, violet to lilac, fading in age to tan or light-brown.

Stipe 3-6.5 cm long, 1-2.5 cm thick, equal to enlarged or bulbous at the base, the latter frequently with adhering lilac to purple mycelium; surface fibrillose to slightly scaly, colored like the cap, veil lacking.

Spores 6-8 x 4-5 µm, elliptical, minutely roughened; spore print pale pinkish-buff.

Fruiting singly, gregariously, or in fairy rings under a variety of hardwoods and conifers; appearing from late fall to mid-winter; depauperate fruitings are occasionally seen along the coast during the summer, the result of fog drip.

Edible and considered good by many, but lacking somewhat in texture. Local material varies greatly in it's taste, from quite good to very poor. Known to cause gastrointestinal upsets if eaten raw.

I took the info from THIS SITE.

Hope you like!

And yet another masterpiece Felipe!
It is good to see you posting...;-)
I've always enjoyed basidiomycetes in my salad, on my steaks, and on my pizza, but you have made the world of mushrooms come alive in a whole new way!
Thank you Felipe!

Hi Felipe!

Great portrait of 'zorro' mushroom :-) Autumnal mood, great looking browns, Felipe's DOF [TM] ;-) Believe me or not but this autumn I didn't take any picture of fungi! What a shame! But I was ill long time and then winter came. BTW - I cleaned glass in my aqua :-) Best wishes my friend!

Hello Felipe!
Wonderful close up.Colors,details,POV,framing and composition are excellent.TFS...:-)

nice capture. I love this late autumn mushrooms. In favourable times I find many of them. I usualy mix them with other mushrooms for enhancing flavour, but I use them alone for pickles (they keep the consistency, doesn't become soft)

Regards, Petru

Another nice one Felipe. I will have to eat some Spanish mushrooms someday. The contrast in this shot stands out nicely. Well done.

Hi Felipe+Cristina,
fresh quality mushroom from the experts, looks not only edible but rather appetizing with the velvety texture showing. Excellent!

Caramba, es una de las setas mas bonitas que he visto, que color mas extraño. Me encantaria encontrarme algo asi. Veo que estos dias de ausencia me he perdido trabajos estupendos. El color otoñal y la tonalidad oscura general del ambienta le añaden misterio a este raro ejemplar. Cuantas cosas maravillosas nos quedan por ver en nuestra propia casa verdad?
Un saludo y gracias por publicar y enseñarnos la naturaleza escondida.
