Description

Thanks to April for the ID, though apparently "bloxamii" is a misspelling of "bloxami." I wonder how we'll resolve this...

Ken, given that I am a newbie to fungi, I would have called this a blewit. Please enlighten me.

Leslie, it is indeed quite blewit-like. Probably the clearest difference is that Entoloma has white gills, which blewits almost always have at least somewhat purple-ish gills. There's usually not too much contrast between gill color and cap color in blewits either, whereas you can see a pretty stark contrast here. I don't remember what Entoloma smells like, but blewits usually (not always) smell faintly of orange juice. I don't think there's another mushroom around here that has that odor.

Excellent. Good to know; this winter I will do a lot more smelling!

Did "they" change this? Do we need to split E. bloxamii.

Yes, E. medianocte is a new name given to western US E. bloxamii/bloxami/madidum by our friend Mr. Schwarz.
