Original description

of C. rubellus Cooke is not a good match with this species. Not sure what Cooke describes, but with dark ferrugineous bands, and spores 8×5 microns, it sounds closer to paragaudis or something in that group..

For this taxon I’d prefer to use the name Cortinarius speciosissimus – in IndexFungorum a synonym to rubellus, but not in MycoBank.

Two years ago, the name C. speciosissimus was proposed to be conserved against rubellus, but it hasn’t been settled, mainly because the members of the nomenclature committee treated them as synonyms and not bothered to study the original description of rubellus (except “RYMA” who states that the picture is good and “easy to recognize with the yellow bands on the stem”). Sigh..

Unfortunately, there is no type collection of C. rubellus, only the following picture:
