I’m always hesitant to key out Cortinarius(especially here in the PNW) because they can take up a weekend. Anything helps. I’ll have to go back to this spot and collect a few for the KOH test- it might make some pretty colorful pics.

Thanks again,

Drew

ps- saw some of your images from the Mount Rainier trip and they are AMAZING!!!

Phlegmacium in the Calochroi group (I think)

KOH should turn the flesh pink I think.
