I’ve been accumulating a little bag of similar collections that you have suggested we keep for later follow-up.

Then I do not know. Preserve it and let’s deal with it the next batch — if you have it, do not send it yet, let’s wait until more material accumulates.

Dimitar, I didn’t get any distinct odor

from these.
If you blow-up the third photo, one can see the lilac tints on some of the caps, especially the younger ones. Also, these were rather stubby with little, short rimmed bulbs. C. talus seems to be more robust, with no purples and a larger, more rounded bulb?

Hi Ron, this reminds me of Cortinarius talus and as usual you measure the spores a bit larger — did you smell it — did it have a faint honey like odor? Here is my page.
