From a distance I though C. laniger too, but this reminds me of something in the general vicinity of Cortinarius traganus — we have this version that almost lacks any bluish colors. Adam, it is critical to take notes on the odor — I suspect this one smelled. A look at the spores could easily prove/disprove that hypothesis.

My first thought was something close to Cortinarius laniger or bivelus, but a closer look showed bluish gills, so they are out of the question. Sorry, but I can’t give any better help with this.

Irene: any idea what kind of Cort?

Oops, sorry about the last two, I’ve deleted them.

I really like the stately shape of this cort and thought maybe you or Dimitar would have an idea as to which kind it might be?
