Observation 87469: Cortinarius subgenus Telamonia (Fr.) Trog
When: 2011-10-16
Herbarium specimen reported
0 Sequences

This guy is in a clade with several similar Western American species, but not as easy clade to name… There is one matching collection from British Columbia (GenBank: DQ097870), which is improperly named as C. hemitrichus. Just because a Telamonia has scaly-scurfy pileus doesn’t make it C. hemitrichus. I am sure this species is broadly distributed, but rarely collected.

Unlike most genera, Cortinarius, subgenus Telamonia becomes harder to understand as one becomes familiar with the molecular data!!

This species here is actually not too distant from this one here
