lepista nuda is the one , we call em wood blewits (pronounced bloo weeze)
lepista saeva are field blewits , there's 2 in one of my recent posts on this thread (post #95 pic 3)
I used to think they were called blueys before I'd sat with some literature and started studying edible wild ones
anyhow... happy hunting!
good for you for not going with common names, i used to be the same
but memory lacking for the taxonomy... tends to have me coughing out common names,
in a way- that's the reason i posted here lol - save me having to label them each,
but yes, very confusing internationally using common names (especially talking house plants with folk in usa too)
I'll try sticking to internationally recognised naming or none at all , but will probably forget a few times lol
my original reason (looking back) for not using common names initially was that stupid one "fairy ring champignon" (marasmius oreades) since the common name is applicable to so many...
so yeah,... good call
and to reiterate : fkn nice to see such huge lepista nuda!!! - nice to see any really, but still , whoppers mate!
