but I did stop and photograph the striking ones. Go ahead and put up your name suggestion…I agree that it does kinda look like that species. a “could be” for now would be sufficient.

I’m pretty sure that I have dessicata for these in transit. Dimi wanted to do the DNA analysis on the Alaska corts, and I was happy to help him.

Maybe you will recognize more of these cort species that we saw? Photos coming…Perhaps Alaska has much in common with Scandinavia? Sounds like you sure have those diverse Leccinum species!

Too young

to see the actual colours on cap and stem, but it looks an awful lot like Cortinarius canabarba. Just an idea.
