Observation 47978: Cortinarius flavobasilis M.M. Moser & O.K. Mill. ex Peintner, Kuhn.-Fink., C.L. Cripps & Ammirati

These were a little aged but they did drop some spores that were approx.
9.0-10.6(11.1) X 5.9-6.5(7.0) microns and fairly rough/warted.
Caps were up to 5.0 cm across.
KOH on all surfaces seemed to be negative to just slightly darker( brownish).
They had a slight odor which was not unpleasant to me.

C. flavobasalis

So, we know now that this is the well-known C. flavobasalis nom. prov. (with very unclear authorities). It is more common in the northern-Sierra/Cascade range, as in the brtoader PNW and the Rockies. The southernmost collection I have is from Truckee (Central Sierra). We’re collaborating on a joint effort to describe some of the Western American spring Telamonia. Will talk about it more on MushroomTalk when I have time.

There are also 3 other species that are close to this one, but so far have been found only in California.

This is an example of good notes and well preserved material that got sequenced and contributed to an improvement of our understanding.


P.S. I look scary on that photo, damn…

This one is a more common snow bank Telamonia

This one is more common with most of my collections being from Mt. Lassen, Truckee, but also Yosemite. So, they do move North and South, unlike my earlier hypotheses. Major next project is to collect Spring Telamonia material from the Rockies and see how it compares.
