another theory shot to hell! ;)

both gymnopilus and cortinarius have rusty brown spore drop. I did assume that the veil was colored from the get-go, pre-spore drop. But you know what they say about assume…

“But I can see where you might be confused by that “rusty veil”. If you look a bit closer, you can see that the gills themselves are still brightly yellow, so the veil color is NOT due to sporedrop!”

Yes it is…

some of these IDs come from long experience…

and part of the learning curve is to be able to recognize which features are the important ones in the specimen in hand. Substrate of course, is a biggie, in this case growing from wood.

But I can see where you might be confused by that “rusty veil”. If you look a bit closer, you can see that the gills themselves are still brightly yellow, so the veil color is NOT due to sporedrop!

Field mycologists need to be detectives, too. Keep looking and asking questions.
And be assured, sometimes the mushrooms will fool even the best of us.

Cortinarius are mycorrhizal?

These were growing on a pile of wood chips that was almost a meter high and three meters long.

about how you keyed this. Was the orange veil remnant the major defining feature? At first and second glances I would have labeled this a Cortinarius.

Nice photos

I like your photos. It seems you used a Nikon E995. That is quite impressive for a 4 MP camera. I had an old Nikon pivoting digital camera and it took excellent photos.
