just sent a note saying the base had broken off this specimen.

Randy, that information should have been recorded in the original observation for everyone to see. If the base was another 15 cm deep, or if the base was bulbous it could change everyone’s opinion of what this is (or isn’t).

the lack of a bulbous base. In fact, there’s no base at all…

I’m not ruling out Cortinarius. But I’m not ruling out Phaeocollybia, either.

Stipe length alone can’t rule out Cortinarius, there are species with rooting stipes like this.

would seem to rule-out Cortinarius, Randy. Especially is much of the stipe is underground
