Not armillatus.

C. armillatus is one of the most common Corts around here. The tell-tale feature is the presence of 1-3 saffron “bracelets” deposited on the stipe. It’s primarily a summer/early-fall species and seems to occur only where birch is present. Also, C. armillatus has significantly larger spores than these.
