Observation 1630: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray

When: 2006-12-09

Collection location: Albion, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

One more unknown here (although I could add about 6 more unknown Russulas, really need to get better with Russulas (and a few more unknown Ramarias, but I digress…)…). Kinda a purple Cortinarius-y kinda guy. But the interesting thing is the funny smallish cap compared to the stipe. And a close up of the lamellae, shows how they are small, undeveloped and with roughened edges. So, not sure what to make of this one, but kinda neat.

Seems like a Cort to me as well

I’ve seen one with that color. I would guess the small cap is just an environmental thing and not a character of the species.
