Yeah, I know, I shouldn’t post a single mushroom for id in Cortinarius, but this one was so colorful, it seemed that it could be unique enough for an id. Checked the few books I have (along with more than one mushroom for an id, how many books does it take to id a Cort?), I didn’t seem to get anywhere in trying to id this one.
