Stop obsessing on variation and exactitude, call them Cortinarius calochrous.

Yes, just now.

And I get stuck with the calochrous-group as before but no exact match ;)

the key here:
http://www.cortinarius.org ?

The key works fine, but I don’t think it covers all species yet..

it’s in MycoBank, but not as a “current name”, neither in Indexfungorum..

It’s still in our database,

but I remember someone told me it has a new name now. I cannot find it in newer literature too. But it is still in mycobank.

I wonder

what happened with caroli..? I used to have an idea of a species with very blue gills, but I can’t see anyone recognising this form anymore.

The original description of caroli is available in České houby, but I can’t read it. It looks too short anyway to be diagnostic for this difficult group.

There is also no file with C. provencalis in the database.

But exsiccatum is at Vienna University although still not looked at.
I would almost say it is this species. I can’t remember if I applied KOH to it for on this day I had found other Phlegmacium and was in a hurry. I am afraid this reaction only works on the living specimen?
Then again we have a specialist in Vienna and I think she will be come to a conclusion nevertheless.

Could be hiding

under the name provencalis..? Grows with oak, beech and hazel. Hornbeam is not mentioned, but species with hornbeam often goes with hazel too.
No reaction or just a weak brown with KOH makes it differ from most of the others in the calochrous group.

Is this within the calochroi? What is the ecology of this species? In the Austrian database there is no such taxon.
