Gliophorus versicolor
E. Horak 1973
This species is very similar to G. lilacinoides and can be a problem to tell apart, fortunately the spores are of a different size and shape. Also the gill atachment is also different, been adnate to subdecurrent. In older fruiting body's the cap is plano-convex to sub-depressed which does no accrue in G. lilacinoides.
