Observation 24961: Tylopilus rubrobrunneus Mazzer & A.H. Sm.

This is some sort of Tylopilus. IT has a woody stem and the pore surfaces turns violet with age semi bitter taste and last but not least another species of mushroom coming from the bottom of the stem. Ok look close there is a small what appears to be a cortinaris of some sort attached to the base of this Tylopilus stem. Is this possibly some sort of a parasitic mushroom ? so chime in if you can figure out who this Tylopilus little buddy is.

every once in a while, check out this combo that Renée Lebeuf found at NEMF a couple of years ago.

The little mushroom does look like Cortinarius bolaris but it’s tough to tell

Yes i have tasted some around here that where extremely biter to say the least. I was unsure about Tylopilus rubrobrunneus because of the taste. And ususally around here in WV, they have somewhat club shaped bases, This observation was interesting because if you look close there is a very small Cort growing very close. As you can see it was attached. It looks like a C. bolaris. I have never encountered this before any thoughts?
