With all the caveats of putting European names on American material…

I meant to tell the audience back there that that name should be applied with all the caveats of putting European names on American collections. It is in the cotoneus group. It is not clandestinus – that one has smaller spores and scalier pileus. Of course, practice shows that what has been described from the Eastern USA does not have to match the same thing from the Western USA, in fact in many Genera they are strikingly different. So, I agree in the cotoneus gr.

but not exactly the same as C. cotoneus Fr.; maybe not exactly the same as C. clandestinum either (the type was described from mossy ground under Douglas fir and hemlock).

Looks like something in the Cortinarius cotoneus group to me.
