Observation 45218: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray
When: 2010-05-07
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This fungi really caught my attention even though it was almost hidden in the shadows. I have included some of the verification standards I use in photographing fungi that I post. There was no obvious aroma and the cap although rough to touch was not sticky. The stipe was rather thick I thought.

Not sure about Ozzieland, but all Dermocybe spp. stateside that I’m familiar with are characterized by intense gill coloration, which, oddly enough, produces radically different colors than those of the lamellae when used to dye fabric (depending on the mordent, of course).

similar to the NZ species Dermocybe cardinalis but that is a Nothofagus associate on the other side of the Tasman…

The gills are not bright enough to be D. splendida which, when you flip it over it’s like WOW! in your face orange-red.

Roy, I did look at naming the specimen what you have suggested, but refrained because all my references mention a red type of banding on the stipe. I re-read the references and it could be concluded that the red banding is an occurance and so will go with your nomination. Many thanks, kk.

I’ve only seen D. splendida once in NSW and this could be that one.
