Observation 58927: Cortinarius subgenus Telamonia (Fr.) Trog

Caps on these were up to 15 cm across and seemed dry.
Spores were about 9.1-10.1 X 6.3-7.3 microns and fairly warted.
KOH on the cap turned darkish gray and on the flesh a somewhat lighter gray.
The stipe was covered with a layer of creamy fibers which looked a little like C. laniger but these spores were a little rounder and larger.

It does look somewhat lanigerian, but the spores…

Hi Ron,

it is a Telamonia for sure. Reminds ,me somewhat of C. laniger and allies, but those spores bother me – they’re just too wide.

Let me take a look at my archive and see if something pops up.

In the Spring I will put an illustrated series of Pages on Cortinarius of California with macro/micro morphology for reference. That way we’ll have something to match against quickly and synchronize our collections.
