Hi Adolf,

I don’t know what it is. Maybe it hasn’t been described. It is not Cortinarius leucopus because it is only 93% similar to a C. leucopus sequence from Innsbruck. Garbelotto published a C. vernus sequence from a herbarium in Venice and your sequence is only a 94% match, so I don’t think it’s C. vernus either. It seems to have some similarity from the undescribed species that occurs on Galiano Island, all the way down to California (Dimitar knows about it).
