Don’t worry about not finding it, a lot of mushroom are extremely time sensitive. I love to forage and basically you get a very narrow time window for certain types of mushroom (maybe like a week) and a wide one for some others (we get the bay bolete for a month and a half). I don’t really know the amethyst deceiver, so I can’t tell if that was it or not, but don’t be discouraged, try again next year. Maybe bring someone who knows how to forage for mushroom with you, though. Some mushroom can look a lot like some others, so you could be deceived. (*badum-tss, I’ll show myself out)
