I think these may be C. torvus, or something close at least. The prominent annulus is certainly unusual for a Cort…assuming for the time being that’s what it is. Gills didn’t show much purple… only a hint. No odor noticed, and not a single spore fell. I tried tapping onto the slide but could find nothing under the scope. Arora also mentions C. urbicus. Dimitar, in a discussion here at MO, mentions that C. torvus is part of a group of similar species.
