Dermocybe sanguineus and Cortinarius sanguineus are names used to refer to the same species of mushroom.

So the North American…

red corts do include C. sanguineus. Assuming this name applies to some eastern NA collections, Phil’s proposal would appear to merit a “promising.”

Thanks for the input, Irene.

that the link goes only an abstract.. So does this one:

could all be called “C. sanguineus group”… at least until someone begins to sort this out. Reminds me of the situation with the yellow/mustard-gilled dermocybes that I call “C. croceus group”, except around here the croceus types are much more common than these red ones.

Phillips and Lincoff (Audubon) both include the species name C. sanguineus in their North American field guides.

Found this link to descriptions of Euro species.

I don’t beleive in sanguinea either. And what’s more, they have found another lookalike in Fennoscandia (C. vitiosus), so now we can’t even be certain about sanguinea there without thorough examination..

Phil, I believe that…

“sanguineus” is a species name applied to European collections. I haven’t run across much info regarding the red cort that occurs in eastern NA. Bessette describes Cortinarius marylandensis, a reddish Dermocybe of eastern NA.
