Observation 59225: Cortinarius subgenus Telamonia (Fr.) Trog

When: 2010-09-22

Collection location: Gotland, Sweden [Click for map]

Who: Irene Andersson (irenea)

Specimen available

Like Douglas, I’m not in the habit of collecting little brown Telamonias, but I made an exception with this one.
It was growing under oak and hazel, and I didn’t notice any particular smell. They are small, the largest cap maybe 35 mm. It had a very stiff and brittle stem, and I thought this would be a simple case.
In addition, the spores are unusually small for the genus, around 6,5-7 × 4,5-5 microns. But I can’t find anything in my books that’s even close..?!

If not undescribed, at least not sequenced before. I’ll have a look again in the old Kryptogamenflora by Moser..

Here is some seqeunce data

Irene, you can take over from here on.
