for which we westerners are deeply grateful.

it is unmistakeable, once you get to know it, and always a pleasure to find.

there is enough info to ID it…

Cortinarius vanduzerensis was described from western US growing with spruce… It’s the only mushroom here that looks like this. The viscid cap and purple stipe, it’s tough to mistake this one for anything else out here.

Great beyond identification!

It’s a really neat photo, but I don’t see how we can use it to identify the species. It’s a little brown cort with a purplish white stem, slimy cap in the rain.

To get beyond “’little slimy brown and purplish cort”, we’re going to need at least one more photo.
