Indigo Pinkgill - Entoloma chalybaeum var. chalybaeum
The cap is 2 to 5 cm in diameter, convex and umbilicate; dark steel blue with a covering of fine hairs or scales. The gills are white at first, becoming dirty salmon pink; they are rather thick and moderately spaced.
Deciduous woodland, and occasionally in grassland and heaths.
Summer and autumn.
Never common, but more frequent in Scotland (particularly, it seems, in the west) and in the north-west of England and Wales than it is elsewhere in the UK.
Infrequent in Leicestershire and Rutland.
