Observation 87510: Cortinarius orichalceus f. luteifolius
When: 2011-10-16
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This is another gorgeous Phlegmacium in the calochroid clade, “anthraquinone” sub-clade, that I have collected around Yosemite a couple of times before. There is one observation with it on MO already. This species has been collected before in the PNW (GenBank: HM068562, FJ717511, EU057024), but represents a key data point for Yosemite.

Cortinarius orichalceus f. luteifolius

Based on the type studies that Tuula Niskanen and Kare Limatainen are doing this one is unequivocally Cortinarius orichalceus f. luteifolius A.H.Smith. I did not expect to see that name match, but it did. The taxon will have to be promoted to a species rank, so that name will be changed eventually.
