Observation 144558: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray
When: 2013-08-30

Notes: Cortinarius sp. with bulbous base, found in woods dominated by Beech, Hemlock with some Oaks nearby. Very pale when young buttons, later turning tan/brown when mature/old. Gills purple when young, then turning brownish with age. Pronounced webbing when buttons are opening. 5% KOH on mature caps darkens the brown color. Spores have the typical Cortinarius-type rough surface and the spore print is cinnamon brown. Compare with http://mushroomobserver.org/144465 and http://mushroomobserver.org/144298 , which are likely the same.

… very similar to mine. I have no immediate plans to sequence this because I have so many Inocybes and Entolomas planned. If I start getting serious about Corts, I’ll be stretched too thin.

I am interested to hear your comment on this species. This seems to be what passes for C. alboviolaceus here in the east, but what I have seen in the west is clearly different. Did you happen to sequence this?
