Observation 50587: Cortinarius multiformis (Fr.) Fr.

When: 2010-08-11

Collection location: Fraser Experimental Forest, Grand Co., Colorado, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These were found under mixed conifers at around 9200 Ft.
They may have been ID’d to species at the NAMA Foray but I didn’t see them displayed.
The buff caps were slightly tacky with the cuticle peeling off fairly easily.
KOH on all surfaces gave a negative reaction.
The spores were ~ 8.9-9.2 X 5.9-6.1 microns and sl. rough.
I’ll check the final NAMA species list(when published) to see if anything matches.

This one looks more like C. multiformis

This one looks more like the group around C. multiformis. The spores shape/size and the absence of KOH reaction suggests that too. Keep in mind that the inner Rockies are very rich of species in that group. I have had several collections from Idaho one of which came 99% to the trusty European multiformis collections.
