Observation 202582: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray
When: 2015-04-09

Notes: Unusual find. In the first instance , barely visible pileus creating lifted forest floor debris. Further investigation kept revealing more that expected. Fungi were all in good condition with some minor insect damage. Four all told of medium size were unearthed. The caps were light brow, and stipes were Thick with grooves running down the stipes for a short distance. The stipes tapered sharply at the root area. Only one group found in the area. (Large specimens of Cantharellus were close by.) The outer edge of the pileus,(outer perimeter), was sticky but no where else. Gills crowded.

My first impression was also paxillus but the webbing on the stalk reminded me more of corts.
