Observation 87483: Cortinarius napus group

When: 2011-10-16

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

Who: Dimitar Bojantchev (dimitar)

Specimen available

This Yosemite collection was a surprise – very close to Cortinarius napus — but even closer to a local representative of that clade Cortinarius subpurpureophyllus var. sulphureovelatus which was not immediately obvious.

Anyway, this is a limited collection in terms of the number of developed carpophores, but still an important data point to keep a close watch on. It demonstrates the tremendous diversity of the genus and that Yosemite has a good representation of it.
