Could be one or another..

Of course there is the chance that this is a European species from under birch, as we have seen some Leccinum that travel well with birch. I know of one European Cort on the UC Berkeley campus that has travelled with a planted white pine too. But in all cases settling at Cortinarius sp. is the prudent thing in this case as we do not know enough to even throw a decent conjecture.

Darvin, I’d be interested if you reveal that secret spot to me next fall.

No live oak in the area.

These were fruiting in a cemetery under the drip line of Birch. There was one Monterey Pine that the wind blew down and is now a stump. I guess they won’t be returning this winter.

An indigenous Telamonia…

This is an indigenous Telamonia in a group that I am familiar with and have sequenced extensively. It is not any of the European names, but I need a bit more info like the odor to know better. We have two of these under live oak and they are local Californian. We have a couple under conifers that are common throughout the PNW. These are either in the /vernus or /decipiens clades.

Tried to create name Cortinarius subg. Telamonia, but failed. Voting for Cortinarius sp. I have a couple of nom. provs. for these, but will spare you the pleasure until they are well defined.
