Collection location: Lake Absarraca, Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA [Click for map]
Growing on the ground under Willow trees at the edge of the lake.
This gill fungus has a cinnamon colored spore print, a nice mushroomy (i.e., like Agaricus bisporus) fragrance and taste. The buttons have a very fugaceous veil, that looks a bit less cobwebby than what I’m led to expect of Cortinarius, but my preliminary id. has now been confirmed by the administrator of this site.

I should probably make it so I can’t add comments as admin since I’ve done that more than once now.
