consist of pale slime on a darker stem..

C. trivialis can grow with several kinds of hardwoods, often aspen. Is the twig on the ground some kind of Populus?
I still choose to name them Cortinarius trivialis group, because there are at least two distinctly different forms in Europe, and I don’t know which one is the original trivialis.

Btw, nice to see mushrooms from Kazakhstan!
