Cortinarius balteatocumatilis Rob. Henry ex P.D. Orton 1960

These corts grow gregariously individually or in cespitose clusters with Basswood. The above specimens were collected during the NAMA Foray in Wisconsin in a few years ago (2017). They are substantial fruiting bodies having a somewhat mottled viscid to tacky convex violet to brown smooth cap with an inrolled margin, pale closely spaced gills that become rust-brown, an itinally white cortina and stumpy stem that browns below its attachment on the lower section. The stipe has an enlarged base.

Cortinarius balteatocumatilis is in the Phlegmacium clade.
