blewit or bluette or blewitt (BLOO-it) - n., either of two species of edible pale-blue mushrooms (genus Lepista or Clitocybe or Tricholoma), being the wood blewit and the field blewit.


The field blewit is also called blue-leg. Not to be confused with bluet, which encompasses any of several different species of plants having blue flowers, including genus Centaurea, which includes the cornflowers, genus Houstonia, and species Oldenlandiopsis callitrichoides, or creeping-bluets. All of these are probably variously spelled diminutives of blue, or possibly of French bleu, blue.
