Observation 85351: Cortinarius vibratilis (Fr.) Fr.

These were rather small, with caps up to 3.5 cm across.
The caps seemed to be dry.
Spores were ~ 7.2-8.1 X 5.0-6.0 microns and slightly rough.
They were growing in mixed woods of mostly Redwoods, tanoaks and some conifers.
KOH on the cap gave a reddish brown color.
KOH on other surfaces was negative.
They had a slight odor which I could not identify.

is a really small species, caps around an inch, and it should have a slimy veil, smaller spores and bitter cap cuticle.
