Observation 119143: Cortinarius albofragrans Ammirati & M.M. Moser
When: 2012-12-05
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These look like one of those veiled Hebelomas that have all the characteristics of a Cortinarius.
Hebeloma mesophaeum is described as having a brown spore print and minutely roughened spores.
These do have an apparent cortina and a distinctive odor but I would call the spore print rusty brown(see photo) and the spores definitely more than minutely roughened.
They were growing near Live Oak and Madrone.
Spores were ~ 10.0-10.9 X 6.0-6.9 microns.
Edit; Definitely a Cortinarius…which I have seen before.
