Recognized by sight: I don’t think this is Cortinarius because they appeared to be growing from the debris on the forest floor. A good amount of duff was attached to the stem bases.

as I understand, 57362 resembles the H. radicosum in B/B/F (which is probably actually a Cort) but 57362 is not likely to be a Cort based upon the structure of the veil. Lack of rooting stem supports rejecting radicosum. Pholiota lenta as seen in each of B/B/F and Phillips matches very well. It’s got my vote.

I’m probably the culprit there. I probably cleaned the cap in an effort to make a “clean” photo.

The Hebeloma photo in Bessette & Fischer is probably a Cortinarius. I saw the fresh collection. Pholiota lenta seems reasonable for this but the lack of debris on the glutinous cap is puzzling.

The caps are quite slimy.

I didn’t notice any rooting stems, in fact they seemed to be attached to the duff as I said before. The gills have a small decurrent “tooth” and small occasional serrations.

is a tough species with a long rooting stem and a strong smell of bitter almonds (unlike all other Hebelomas).
So, I think Pholiota lenta, a late autumn species, is the best idea so far.

Thanks Dave.

I do believe you’re right. I did consider H. radicosum but was confused by the description of the stipe. After re-reading it, I think you’re right.
