Cortinarius delibutus?

I would put this in the C. delibutus group. Its a Myxacium that has a ochre viscid cap with violet tinged gill when young. The stem is clubshaped and whitish. The name C. delibutus has been applied to several different phylogenetic species and more work needs to be done in this area.

""the climate of this area is also moderated by the nearby Great Lakes, so it is able to support animal and plant species usually not found in other parts of Canada""

Was there a lot of purplish/lilac/violet color, particularly in the gills of a younger specimen? If so, it could be C. alboviolaceus.

I notice you collect very frequently in south-central Ontario, and see some species I don’t routinely come across, including Tylopilus spp. and red, pink, and violet corals. What habitats do you hunt in?

Thank you
