I just saw it in Volks key that Noah sent. I thought he keyed out mellea for me. Now it makes sense…. I had been waiting for a cort to appear in the literature, and through the key its like i was dancing around it. It says cortinarius appearance.

i can live with that.

Thats the only reason i thought it was some strange cort….I agree it should be armillaria, but i only see a dark capped species with coarse scales.
