Substrate: Duff, attached to thin Nothofagus roots underground. Younger Nothofagus forest.
Spore print: rusty brown.
Description: Whitsh pileus, cap down bruising yellowish to brownish. Stipe white. Spider web cortina visible. Stem fibrous. Base bulbous, appears there is a volva present too (see photos).
Its been a long time since I´ve identified a mushroom… but from Gamundi and Horak´s book ¨Fungi of the Andean-Patagonian Forests¨ (2011?) it looks like Cortinarius (Phlegmacium) crystallophous Moser & Horak, although they don´t list a volva in that species description. Though its important to note that according to this book, having a volva on a Cortinarius apparently isn´t crazy, the authors list C. coleopus as having a volva.
