Observation 147743: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray

Found by others at SFSU Bio800 field trip weekend.

Found in mixed conifer forest.

Non-viscid in cap and stipe, cap with dark scales, almost black. Dark grey-brown in KOH.

This could be C. venetus if I saw this in Europe, or could be C. melanotus even. But from California in the Sierras, not sure what to call it.
