When: 2014-07-25

Collection location: Lackawanna State Forest, Dupont, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Phil Yeager (gunchky)

No specimen available

Basically a guess due to what appears to be a superior band on the stipe and other bands forming. An immature specimen collected by another person in mixed woods. Cortina white. Orange stains at base of stipe context.

No idea on species, sorry. Emma Harrower is the Cortinarius expert who makes helpful comments and proposals occasionally—perhaps she’ll be able to help.

Thanks Teri

I thought that these may have been in the developmental stages, but as I said it was only a guess. Any idea as to species.

I agree with Dave,

On the buttons I’ve found the orange red universal veil remnants are very prominent as distinct rings on the stem and the stem base is swollen. Also the cap is a little more red brown than here.


Phil, I think the stipes…

are lacking in reddish bracelets and are too equal in top-to-bottom thickness for armillatus.
