But I don’t believe that this critter is alboviolaceus; no silvery sheen, no lavendar context. If Dimi can’t come up with a name, with dessicata in hand, it’s probably hopeless for us mere mortals. But it is only because of Dimi’s fine and dedicated work that I even bother to collect and work up these things…he is the only person that I know of in California who has stepped into the vast cortinarius ID breach, with eyes open and a brave heart. I applaud his past, current and future work, from which we all stand to benefit. Go, Dimitar!
Just figure I’d take a shot…I can’t tell if thats sheathing, or if the base is bulbous. Otherwise spores, habitat, cap, gills.
The first spore shot with the clearly ornamented spores + the
measurements is very important. Good job. Next thing – get
stronger eyepieces 16X and/or also crop your photo to keep only
the part with maximum resolution. But I see huge progress overall
- that’s light years ahead of what we had (or didn’t have)
before. I will inspect the material for a couple of extra things
and look into a name.
perhaps we’ll even (finally) get a name for this handsome critter!
that this is a Sericeocybe but an unknown to me…
Noah, I agree that it looks like a Sericeocybe in the
albo-/griseoviolaceus group. Still, we’re at a stage in
California when we need to examine each Cortinarius collection
critically. Debbie, good job on the KOH, context, taste,
etc. Please post the spores — size, shape, ornamentation, as
context pale brown/tannish; no discernable odor; mild taste.
what is the flesh color and any odor?
