Found under spruce and fir.
Cap and stipe non-viscid, gills yellow-olive, stipe yellow-olive with brown scales and rings, cap olive-green and yellow with black scales. Stipe context rose-brown in KOH, cap brick-red then black in KOH. Taste mild.
Using Funga Nordica this keys out fairly well as C. melanotus, but using Champions du Suisse tome 5 the id is uncertain, and the photo of C. melanotus there does not seem to have the black scales, although they are described in Funga Nordica.
The micro-shot is of spores from the veil at 1000x in KOH. The spores are sub-globose, brown and warted. The size is apr. 7 × 5.5 um.
The spores match well with sources for Cortinarius melanotus in size and shape.
I’m not sure I like this id, although they match well with the description in Funga Nordica at least. But they appear much too dark and olive-green than other id’s of Cortinarius melanotus in Champions du Suisee, or on-line.
