Description
Clitocybe nuda, also known as Lepista nuda or Wood Blewit, is a medium-sized, fleshy agaric, with a brownish cap and lilac gills. It grows in trooping groups, often in rings, in leaf litter in deciduous and mixed woodland and under hedgerows during autumn and winter.

Cap violet-brown, emerges dark and bun-shaped, becoming convex and then flattened. Its colour becomes paler from the margin as the cap surface dries. The flesh bluish lilac, thick, firm. Gills liliaceous, attached to the short, stout stem. The spores are pink. Stem coloured as the cap, more or less equal, fibrillose and often slightly thickened at the base. The mushroom has no ring.
