Collection location: Observatory Hill, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada [Click for map]
Original Herbarium Label: Cortinarius parevernius Rob. Henry
Herbarium specimen: UBC F19620 GenBank: HQ604722
The DNA sequence matched Cortinarius tuolumnensis Bojantchev
Since this specimen was mentioned in the protologue of Cortinarius tuolmnensis Bojantchev, it can be considered a paratype of this species. See:
Bojantchev, D. 2013. Cortinarius of California: eight new species in subg. Telamonia. Mycotaxon 123: 375-402.

we could use a collection of parevernius from Europe to DNA compare with. Are we certain that these two mushroom names aren’t synonyms?
How does one do the due diligence these days in ensuring that a species hasn’t already been described, when macro and micro are not enough?
as Cortinarius parevernius using Moser (Keys to Agarics and Boleti) & Breitenbach (Fungi of Switzerland). When the DNA of this particular specimen was sequenced, the DNA got into the GenBank as “C. parevernius”. As far as I can see there is no European collection of C. parevernius in the GenBank to compare “C. tuolumnensis” with.
