Could be a known species

About what size is your fungus, Mike? If cap is 50-70 mm it could be a Phlegmacium in the Scauri section, the cap looks viscid and the stipe dry, OK? Then it could be Cortinarius turcopes, a new sp. to be published soon. Normally the cap is more greenish, but I seem to discern a slight olive shade. C. turcopes normally grows with N-fagus, but as we know there may be adaptations to myrtaceous hosts.
