@lichen we call them in dutch (translated) red cabbage mushroom. Nice picture btw, that color purple is hard to photograph.
@WandelStock would be cool to see them irl, I never had the chance :)
@lichen because of the color they are hard to find. This year because of the drought we had none. But you can find them always near Fagus sylvatica, the European beech or common beech, and oak. They live with that tree together.
@WandelStock good to know, thanks, never saw them anywhere in Italy, might have a chance now in Norway perhaps....
@lichen just found one
@WandelStock ooh lucky you :)
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
