Observation 9854: Cortinarius violaceus (L.) Gray

When: 2008-08-22

Collection location: Babcock State Park, Fayette Co., West Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dan Molter (shroomydan)

No specimen available

Notes:
None of the three references mention the cottony purple base, which I found odd considering it is so striking. I enhanced the colors on the first photo, but the second photo is unedited. Even unedited, these seen more colorful than those shown in the field guides.
