Mycelium of Lepista nuda.

STRAINS: Available from commercial and private stocks. The American Type Culture Collection
has several strains. Although few spawn companies sell strains of L. nuda, tissue and spore cultures
are easily obtained from wild specimens. Nevertheless, there are a limited number of productive
strains currently in circulation.

COMMON NAME: The Blewit.
LATIN AND GREEK ROOTS: Lepista comes from the greek "lepis" which means scale. On the
other hand, the species epithet nuda comes from "nudus" or naked. The name Lepista nuda constitutes a contradition of terms, literally translating as the scaly smooth mushroom.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Cap typically violet when fresh, becoming buff brown in drying;
smooth, without hairs; dry; convex or broadly convex to plane in age. The cap margin is inrolled or
incurved when young and simply decurved at maturity. The gills are a pale violet color, sometimes
developing brownish hues in age and are adnexed or ascending in their attachment to the stem. The
stem is equal overall but bulbous at the base and covered with fine fibrils over much of its surface.
