Mokrukh is purple photo and description of the mushroom where it grows and how it looks like

Mokruha purple (Lat. Chroogomphus Rutilus) is a mushroom from the Mokrukhov family. It is simply distinguished from others due to recognizable appearance, which is expressed in memorable color and quite large sizes.


The hat of the purple mokrukh does not stand out in size and on average reaches 10 cm in diameter. At a young age, it often has a convex and rounded shape, as well as a distinct dumb hill in the middle. Upon reaching adult age, the form changes and becomes almost straight, and sometimes even concave. The peel of the hat is smooth, after rains it is covered with mucus, but it becomes wet only for a short period of time, after which it again becomes dry and pleasant to the touch. The hat itself has different and unusual colors, which vary from a reddish, even wine shade, to purple, which we see in the name, copper, orange and yellow.

There are few plates, they are quite wide and rare, they can branch. In a young mushroom, they are completely closed by the cover of mucus, which is barely distinguishable. At first, the color of the plates is pale and yellow, over time it becomes like a shade of cinnamon, and when the spores of the wet ripen dirty, almost black.

The length of the legs can reach 10 cm, and the width is 2-3 cm, it is also often a little curved and becomes narrower to the base. The color of the legs does not differ much from the hat, it simply becomes slightly lighter, the surface itself is smooth, silky, as a result of which the remains of the bedspread. In the ring zone there is a sharp, albeit slight expansion, and the shade becomes noticeably darker, becoming almost indistinguishable from the hat.

The leg in the context of the lilac, to the base becomes yellow, and the pulp of the hat and lilac hat, has no taste and smell. When you soak the mushroom or boil, it becomes bright purple, which is why Mokrukh got its name.

Very often, this species is affected by a hypomitzes, as a result of which its plates acquire a bluish tint, as can be seen in this photo.
