Observation 11756: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray

When: 2008-09-29

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

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These corts were growing in a line directly under a fallen log that was elevated 8cm or so off the ground because its ends were on raised objects — other logs, stumps, or something of the sort.

Oddly, there were two color variations often growing right next to each other. The lining up suggests that all are from the same mycelium, so of the same species.

The interior of the one I sliced open was pithy rather than solid.

Found in damp mixed woods.
