Collection location: Thoiry, France [Click for map]
Found under spruce and fir.
Cap viscid, stipe non-viscid, bulbose base, gills light grey-blue, then light tan, top of stipe grey-blue. Univ. veil patches in the cap disc. Context light rose-brown in KOH, cap rose-tan in KOH.
The micro-shot is of spores from the veil at 1000x in KOH. The spores are ellipsoid, brown, warted, with no germ pore. Apr. size 8 × 5 um.
Using the Cortinarius key in Funga Nordica, these actually key out as Cortinarius glaucopus, and spores really match rather well. But I’ve seen that name applied to so many things… I’m just not sure. But like I will ever be sure of a Cort. id.
