Observation 34875: Cortinarius subgenus Phlegmacium (Fr.) Fr.
When: 2008-09-05
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These medium-large, yellowish-olive-brown with abrupt bulb appear in our pine (Pinus sylvestris) forest in late August and early September. They fruit in groups and chains; young fruitbodies are often buried in pine needles. Can’t remember any specific smell details, but I kept a dried specimen. They often grow together with a similar larger, more orange species which appears to be C. aureofulvus.
The cap is slimy in wet weather.
