White-purple spider web (Cortinarius alboviolaceus)

Description: A hat with a diameter of 4-8 cm, at first round-bell-shaped, then convex with a high obtuse tubercle, convex-prostrate, sometimes with a wide tubercle, often with an uneven surface, thick, silky-fibrous, shiny, smooth, sticky in wet weather, lilac-silver, whitish-lilac, then with ocher, yellow-brown middle, fading to dirty whitish

Plates of medium frequency, narrow, with an uneven edge, adherent to a tooth, first gray-bluish, then glaucous-ocher, later brownish-brown with a light edge. The cobweb cover is silvery-purple, then reddish, dense, then transparent-silky, rather low attached to the stalk, clearly visible in old mushrooms.

Spore powder, rusty-brown.

The leg is 6-8 (10) cm long and 1-2 cm in diameter, clavate, slightly mucous below the girdle, solid, then made, silky white with a lilac, purple tint, with whitish or rusty, sometimes disappearing girdle.

The pulp is thick, soft, watery in the leg, grayish-bluish, then brown, with a faint unpleasant musty odor.

Distribution: White-purple webcap lives from late August to late September in coniferous, mixed and deciduous forests (with birch, oak), on moist soil, in small groups and singly, not often.

Similarity: White-violet cobweb convergence with an inedible goat cobweb, from which it differs in an overall pale purple tone, a very faint unpleasant odor, grayish-bluish flesh, a longer leg with a less swollen base.
