Observation 83707: Cortinarius xanthodryophilus Bojantchev & Davis

Found this one specimen under oak next to one of the beaches.
Cap was 9.0 cm across and the margin was distinctly inrolled.
Spores were ~ 10.0-11.2 X 6.7-7.9 microns.
KOH on the cap was a light reddish brown.
KOH on the cap and stem flesh was essentially negative (see photo).
This lone specimen does seem to fit the description well except perhaps that my limited spore measurements are slightly wider on average than the range noted in the paper.


KOH on all surfaces.
Spores in KOH @ 1000X.

from being a “super cort guy”. Unlike your recent experience at Jackson State Forest, I can go in the woods and enjoy the experience of finding many new species of Corts and many others…even though I may have seen them before.
Yep. Good job Ron.

The real one. In fact you have the rare feature of a bit of blue in the upper stipe – this is about 10-15% of the fruitbodies. Congrats Ron, you’re a super cort guy.
