Observation 25180: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray
When: 2009-09-13
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing on soil in an area where firewood had been stacked earlier this year. It struck me that if one was careless and/or inexperienced, one might mistake younger examples of this for Lepista nuda.

European C. traganus, camphoratus or alboviolaceus which could be mistaken for Lepista nuda too.
