Observation 61362: Cortinarius croceus (Schaeff.) Gray
When: 2010-10-06
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found under pines.

Non-viscid anywhere, all tissues red in KOH, gill bright yellow.

Micro-shot is of spores from the veil at 1000x in KOH. They are warted, ellipsoid, rounded, brown, apr. 9 × 6 um in size.

With the bright colored gills, and the red KOH reaction, looks to be a Dermocybe, and C. croceus looks like a rather good match. (?…)
