Observation 81491: Cortinarius subgenus Phlegmacium (Fr.) Fr.
When: 2011-10-21
Collection location: Thoiry, France [Click for map]
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found under oaks, beech, fir.

Cap yellow-tan, stipe off-white, gills palid to tan. Cap viscid, stipe non-viscid. No reactions to KOH.

The micro-shot is of spores from the veil at 1000x in KOH. The spores are ellipsoid, tan, warted, with rounded ends. The apr. size is 10 × 7 um.

Going through the keys in Funga Nordica, as a Phlegmacium, with no evidence of any blue or purple in the gills or stipe, and the very rounded spores, it is kinda hard to try and get to an id. The key seems to land you on C. cliduchus, as a reasonable match, and found near Fagus. So, this might be a good id, or not, hard to say on this one.

Other people looking at this have nix’ed Cortinarius cliduchus, which was really a reach anyway. That shot down, I’m not sure where to go with this for now…
