Observation 111550: Cortinarius magnivelatus group

When: 2012-09-26

Collection location: Meyers, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mike McCurdy (lesmcurdy)

Specimen available

This solitary fruiting body (and I did search for more) was found in a mixed conifer forest, but predominantly lodgepole pine in the surrounding area.

It was growing in decomposed granite soil, covered by at least 1-1/2" of soil. The only evidence to its being there was a small crack in the soil and the slightest bulge.

The view of the gills make it appear that the cap is in an up-turned position, but in fact, the cap is more or less flat.

One side is badly decomposed to a soft gelatinous state. The affected surface has a lilac hue to it.
