Observation 187557: Gymnopilus P. Karst.
When: 2014-11-07
No herbarium specimen


Clumping Cortinarius with velvet maroon cap, with white-tipped scales.
White whitish cortinas. White-tipped scales on top could be remnants of universal veil.
Sectioned sporocarp reveals interesting details of cap and stipe. Cap is more pink/purple here, with cap flesh a combination of blue, purple and white; gills are yellowish (!), stipe has a hollow center, with pink sides. I really did not expect to see yellow gills here.
