Re naming

The only image in any of my references that has this particular gill habit is the name I suggested, but in the description it fails to make the observation that it grows (or does not grow)on wood. (as does many of Bruce’s descriptions.) I’m still in trying folks, and if I get it wrong, the best solution is to get it right, and I need all the help I can get. Many thanks again.

I agree with Doug, this is not a Rozites/Cortinarius, but what curious gills it has!

Rozites, not sure

I thought Rozites is just a Cortinarius with a more membranous veil. Which would have brown gills (at least in age), and not grow on wood, but on the ground.
