Observation 6753: Cortinarius trivialis J.E. Lange
When: 2008-02-10
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Ok, I’m getting tired of using “group” on this species. But looking at the research that Dimitar has been doing on this stuff at:


The C. collinitus is only getting used from Arora, but Dimitar suggests that this name isn’t valid for here. The notes on Cort. from his research suggests these are C. trivialis.

I’m creating a new name for this observation, and people are vote for it here.

I’d like to be able to see the published descriptions of these species myself before saying one way or another, but I’m not sure how to get to these publications.

If you do manage to track down the info on these species it would be really great to put it into the Name pages (C. collinitus and C. trivialis) for each species like I tried to do with the previous discussion on Tremella aurantia and T. mesenterica.

Def. glutenous

This species, what ever it is, Dimi suggest that it isn’t C. collinitus, and from discussion, and photos on the web from him, it is C. trivialis (it would be good to get a specific citation for this species…), but it seems to have a glutenous universal veil, that splits as the cap opens. The cortina as it breaks ends up getting stuck on the inside surface of the univ. veil, and falls back onto the surface of the stipe.

This one is pretty common under the live oak, and has a pretty long season (although it got started late this year). I’ve more photos of this one…

Is that a glutinous/fibrillose veil that I see? very nice…
