These robust medium-sized Cortinarii were quite abundant in mid-September in mixed taiga forest W of Khanty-Mansiysk (Pinus sibirica, Picea obovata, Abies sibirica, Populus tremula, Betula pendula). They appeared in scattered groups on soil.

The cap was dry, smooth, and dull, buff-coloured to almost white; you can see that it’s crackled in some specimens; some of the specimens also had a sort of a rooting stem. We put KOH on it but the reaction wasn’t impressive, maybe some insignificant darkening on the cap cuticle. The smell was earthly.
