Cortinarius distans Peck 1872

This is a relatively small hygrophanous red-brown cort with tiny fibrils on the cap. It is initially somewhat viscid and then dry. The attached tawny gills are broad and very distant. As the spores mature, they become rust-brown. They appear from July to September in poorly drained soil of oak-hickory woods and are mycorrhizal associates of these trees. Not edible.

They are in sub-section Telamonia.

This is in the Cortinariceae family of the Agaricales order.
