Cortinarius roseolilacinus – Rosy Rozites

In the litter of eucalyptus forests. This large agaric has a clearly recognisable mauve-pink, undulating, non-stick cap on which some pink colour persists, even in old specimens. A veil covers the young, pale lilac gills and later forms a membranous ring around the white stem. Gills produce rusty-brown spores.
