Observation 11450: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray

When: 2008-09-21

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

More corts, close to those of obs. 11449, on the ground in a stand of birch. These have a kind of ring on the stem, plus a cortina, and are club-footed; the two I photographed were fused at the base.

They may or may not be the same species as in obs. 11449. They don’t look much like them, but that may just be the immaturity of these mushrooms. Certainly the gills will turn a similar brown to those others in maturity, as with all corts, when the spores mature.

Photos 3, 4, 5, and 6 taken in the same area on the 25th — they’d proliferated.
