Observation 4076: Cortinarius glaucopus var. olivaceus
When: 2007-09-07
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Under oak trees
Phlegmacium type with edged bulb.
Cap ochre with darker fibrils near the edge, dark brown with ammonia. Up to 5cm diameter.
Gills violet, stem violet above. Veil remnants ochraceous in ring and also on edge of bulb.
Taste bitter. Sharp fruity smell on scraping flesh, may be of mirabelle plums.
Gill edges smooth, not denticulate.
Spores measured as 8×4.5µ

I was not sure of the identification, and it has been suggested to me that it is really C. glaucopus, which is probably more plausible.
