treat this as subgenus Cortinarius, section veniti (=section Leprocybe, Peintner et al. 2004). The group around C. cotoneus that fluoresce yellow under UV form a monophyletic group. C. parkeri is in that group, and floresces bright yellow throughout the basidiocarp with the exception of the veil.

All macroscopic characteristics do point towards the Leprocybe group, ochre-yellowish fruit bodies, strong fluorescence in UV light, collar often placed low on the stipe, the type species for sect. Leprocybe, C. cotoneus is genetically placed in a sister clade to subg. Cortinarius, species in the type subg. Cortinarius are generally with a dry granulose cap and are violet to dark blue in pigment.

Thanks, Christian
