Observation 87446: Cortinarius subgenus Telamonia (Fr.) Trog

When: 2011-09-24

Collection location: Yosemite National Park, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dimitar Bojantchev (dimitar)

No specimen available

This orangish Telamonia is very abundant in the wet meadows and mossy stands of Sierra Nevada. It is in the group of Cortinarius rubricosus and Cortinarius laetus with likely association to dwarf Salix. The Yosemite material matches my collecitons from spruce forests in Washington. There is also a match in Genbank (GQ159898), but I disagree with the name applied. I cannot find anything on the books from Smith’s or Moser’s work that indicates that it had been described.
