Observation 45313: Cortinarius subgenus Sericeocybe P.D. Orton
When: 2010-05-08
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These were a little over the hill but I wanted to see if they keyed out anywhere.
They were growing in mixed woods…cedar, fir and pine.
The spores were about 8.8-9.1 X 6.8-7.4 microns and fairly rough/warty.
KOH on all surfaces turned brown to dark brown.
Did not detect any strong odor.
Cortinarius subalpinus seemed close but caps seemed a little too dark and they dried dark brown.
