Observation 11399: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray
When: 2008-09-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This moderate-sized brownish mushroom was growing in the same general area as the Limacellas (obs. 11166) and a brown slimy mushroom (obs. 11167) both of which had been observed on the 15th and were seen there again today.

The second photo shows this, non-slimy and somewhat larger brown mushroom, together with one of the brown slimy ones, upturned. The sliminess difference (given essentially the same weather and growth location) and differences in gill lightness and general cap-edge appearance point to these brown mushrooms being of two distinct species.

Also found nearby: obs. 11168, on the 15th.
