Observation 48280: Russula Pers.
When: 2010-07-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I feel comfortable that this is a Cortinarius, finding this solitary specimen beneath mixed hardwoods in Mount Rogers National Recreational Area, near Marion, Virginia. What I’m seeking is whether this may be a corrugatus that is weathered and dehydrated, or some other specie. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks, Mark Prosser

I’d never have considered that as an identification. I’ve added another shot after the cap fell off but this shot shows a somewhat sharper sense of the interesting patina like surface when viewed at the larger size option. No help concerning the spore color. Thanks, Mark

Brown spores?

This looks like a Russula in the foetens group.
