Observation 6908: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray
When: 2008-02-23
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: I’d found one like these before, but it was soo dried out, it hard to tell much about it. These are fairly fresh, and better, but I still can’t tell much about them. They were a little too old and dried to get a spore print. But there is some evidence on the stipe of a cortina remnant. The big one was quite large, about 12-14 cm in diameter. They were non-viscid in cap or stipe, and the cap appears to be non-hygrophanous, but not completely sure there.

I’ll have to check spores and such later here…

3/3/2008 – Took a look at the spores, and got a photo. Sorry about the quality of the photo, I’ll get better. The micro-shot is at 1000x in KOH, this is a thread of the cortina taken from the stipe, with spores stuck to the thread. The spores are light brown on KOH, and roughened, which you can almost see in the photo. I would say this is Cortinarius. Other than that, then I can’t say here.
