Yup, not C. glutinosoarmillatus

I think that we don’t get C. trivialis in North America (according to Dimitar’s Facebook post today), so C. trivialis group is the best name for this. I think this is the rare but widely distributed conifer species which you can see more of if you search for Cortinarius trivialis group in the USA. C. glutinosoarmillatus, by contrast is endemic to California.

I do not have a voucher for this one, However…

I have a collection of a trivialis from the same area. I just checked the spore size and found their length to be in the 10-12µ range which would be correct for trivialis, and smaller than the 14-15µ length of C. glutinosoarmillatus. Doesn’t rule the latter out for this observation, but makes it pretty unlikely.
