Sorry, i edited my comment right when you posted. That explains it. Okay, never mind. Obs 29726 is probably much larger, about 4-6 inches long, i think.

Sorry you couldn’t make it to the Russula Blitz.

There is a resemblance…

Now that I look at it, they certainly look alike, but my impression was that the specimens in that observation were rather large, these were very small and slender – the stipe in particular on the other collections looks more robust.

I think these may be the same as observation 29726.

Wait… how big are these??

I remember seeing some very tiny Cortinarius at the Fungus Fair that Dimitar recognized as C. acutus, and they were MUCH tinier than obs 29726.
