Thiers' Pouch Cort (Cortinarius thiersianus)

Observer

leptonia

Date

February 5, 2011

Description

Probably would have been called a Thaxterogaster until recently.

The bands of stipe tissue under a viscid layer (just like C. glutinosoarmillatus), non-percurrent and easily-detached stipe, and pale cap make it a poor match for T. pinguis.

@noah_siegel suggested possibly C. pavelekii, but that species supposedly lacks purple tones and grows with spruce. Also, the DNA sequence is not a good match for a reliably-identified specimen of C. pavelekii at OSU.

Odor briny, like low tide or kelp.
