It is a relative of C. balteatocumatilis, but not conspecific.

I know this species very, very well, it is fairly wide spread in Nor. Cal. It is right in that clade, which is very complex. Irene, soon I will have my Swedish material sequenced too.

But as Dimi mentioned in obs 29568, I’m sure some work needs to be done on californian material.

Irene,
Thanks for the suggestion. I have been finding these in the same spot for the last 3 years. Here are some links.

reminds an awful lot of Cortinarius balteatocumatilis, another european species that grows with oak..
