Further Information

Similar species Superficially resembling one of the dull brown species of Hygrocybe, it is distinguished by the mealy smell and colour changing blue (though this is not always evident) then black on bruising.

With its mealy smell and blackening flesh it could easily be confused with Porpoloma metapodium, however the spore print is non-amyloid and the spores are smaller and subglobose.
