In Cortinarius section Sanguinei in North America; Tuula Niskanen, Kare Liimatainen and Joseph F. Ammirati. The newly described C. harsonii has yellow basal mycelium and on C. marylandensis it’s pale vinaceous pink to pinkish buff. I went back and looked at all my photos of what I had labeled as marylandensis and they were all harsonii, which is more common to the north, and marylandensis more common to the south, with some range overlap in the middle.
