Thaxterogaster is a taxonomic synonym of Cortinarius: new combinations and new names. Mycotaxon 81: 177-184

to my knowledge, Debbie. That it appears to be a sequestrate Cortinariaceae associating with Eucalypts may be interesting. All US Thaxterogasters are associated with conifers.

Are you referring to other families Debbie?

Aren’t all of our sequestrate forms getting returned to their original genera?

This would make this curious secotioid cort a Cortinarius. But which cort is a whole nuther issue.

Looks sequestrate, TimmiT.

In Oregon, this would be Thaxterogaster, a sequestrate Cortinariaceae. In Australia, not sure what it would be.
