Observation 22093: Cortinarius albofragrans Ammirati & M.M. Moser
When: 2005-11-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: At the MSSF Fungus Fair these were and have been called Cortinarius luteoarmillatus..see http://mushroomobserver.org/3080?search_seq=521773
However, a local Cortinarius authority (Mushroom Hobby…) states that this is a misapplied name for our California species and should be called Cortinarius albofragrans, which I believe was described in 1997. http://mushroomhobby.com/...

Didn’t smell these…

as at the time I was primarily collecting for the Fungus Fair. These were found in the same area as the 2004 MO collection which don’t show a lot of rhizomorphs and are more mature. Since they have been appearing fairly regularly in the same area, I’ll try to test the “fragrans” next time they show up.

Nice!

Glad to see someone is paying attention when collecting Cortinarius in
California. Never seen these rhizomorphs, nor did the authors mention
them. Perhaps because we never saw such young material. I assume these
fruitbodies were very fragrant?
