C. subtortus also tastes bitterish and the smell is like Russula badia. I think best is to recollect next year and try to get to a better result.

I just looked at my list of my findings from there

I found Cortinarius infractus there. Var. olivellus I would like to rule out for it is growing in thermophilous deciduous woods whereas this place is at 1400 m NN and in acidic coniferous wood.

Hm, if I could remember :)

There are so many different Cortinarii there when season is good (which was not the case this year being all dried up the whole year) so I can’t remember right now. I know there are some bitter ones there. Cortinarius infractus var. olivellus could be a choice though.

Did you happen to taste it?

The only thing that makes sense to me with those colours and shape is some variety of Cortinarius infractus.. Too dark gills for spadicellus, I think (I’m not very familiar with it either).

That’s why I am not sure about the ID,

I have seen C. spadicellus just once and am not very familiar with this group. I would appreciate it if someone who is firm with it could supervise my finds.

Very strange colours

for subtortus – so much blue in the gills and purplish on the stem.
It reminds a bit of spadicellus.
What microscopic features is it based on?
