Observation 25827: Cortinarius alboviolaceus (Pers.) Fr.

When: 2009-09-26

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Notes:
These are much more abundant in Zone 11 than four days ago. This observation documents one cluster in a fair degree of detail, with several individuals photographed, a wide shot of the whole cluster, and a gill shot of one of the smaller mushrooms.

It is interesting to see just in this one cluster how much variation between violet and brown there can be in cap color with this species.

In the second to last shot, one cause of such variation is apparent: a spore drop from a larger mushroom overhanging a smaller one.
