for the proposal/votes. I can see now that it is proposed that Cortinarius subgenus Telamonia could fit: hygrophanous cap with umbo, smallish stature, lilac shades, rusty brown attached gills and spore print. Because I don’t have enough experience with the two genera I’m having trouble seeing why this proposal is more likely that Inocybe which can also have hygrophanous caps, smallish stature, lilac shades, and (sometimes) rusty brown attached gills and spore prints. The fibrillose cap made me think of Inocybe. I know Cortinarius spp. can have fibrillose caps as well but didn’t associate these with subgenus Telamonia as those (few) that I’ve seen or read about are smooth.
Any clues you can give me would be appreciated.
