Yes I agree that one picture doesn’t help much, I’m going to be more thorough in the future with conveying characteristics and taking good photos and all that, still pretty new to this, thanks again for the advice, cheers

makes “Gymnopus” seem unlikely.

I had previously mentioned spore print. In the case of this observation, it seems likely a print color would have immediately eliminated Gymnopus as a possibility. A sufficiently motivated person can learn a lot about mushrooms by making MO posts that feature good photos. As a result, one then learns about the different aspects associated with discussing fungal IDs. Another thing to consider is that it’s often useful to photograph the mushrooms from different perspectives, so that various traits are highlighted.

I remember they were kind of thick and robust, hopefully they will come back in the same spot this year, thanks for the info

robust for Gymnopus. They also seem overall dark for Cortinarius anomalus. The photo of C. anomalus on Mushroom Expert shows what appears to be dark mushrooms; but the photo looks kinda shadowy. Check the photos at Champignons du Quebec seen via the link https://www.mycoquebec.org/...

I know I’m sorry I was still very new and still am, I went through some pics from last year and these looked very interesting. Sorry I’ll do better
