Recognized by sight: Looks like a photo in a publication to come out soon. When I get to UBC, I’ll have to re-examine the specimen to see if it matches the species description.

See: http://www.indexfungorum.org/... and also
All Oluna’s “Cortinarius azureus” collections are in fact Cortinarius anomelovatus:
Emma Harrower has done a tremendous job on Cortinarius in British Columbia when she sequenced large material (657 specimen sequences) of the genus Cortinarius in the UBC (Vancouver, BC) herbarium and several other Pacific Northwest herbaria. See:
Harrower, E., Ammirati, J. F., Cappuccino, A. A., Ceska, O., Kranabetter, J. M., Kroeger, P., … & Berbee, M. L. (2011). Cortinarius species diversity in British Columbia and molecular phylogenetic comparison with European specimen sequences. Botany, 89(11), 799-810.

did you see Adolf and Oluna Ceskas’s specimens of C. azureus here on MO?

They show striking color changes in the context; your halved specimens also show this (purple upper context, orange at bottom), but are more subtle.

I doubt this is the same as the European form, which seems to have strictly purple flesh.

Are you running DNA on these various corts, Emma? I noticed your profile said you had a particular interest in this genus.

We can use all the help that we can get.
