Unknown Short Fat Mushroom with thick cobweb
    #3131357 - 09/13/04 09:57 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I found these mushrooms together all in various stages of growth at our local county park, where the maitaki is abundant!! I thought the stages of growth were interesting and I would like to know what it is.

Habitat - on ground in old woods under a mixture of oak and maples.
Gills - pale yellow, attached
Cap is 4" and the stem is about 1" with a bulb
Stem is a dirty white and almost irredescent with pale yellow cobweb still attached. The base is a pale yellow. Stem is solid and firm.
Cap is a pale brown and fades to almost an irredescent yellow tint, spherical, very smooth with very fine black lines.
Spore print is a faded brown grey
Flesh is dark lavendar to purple when I removed the stem.
Can't describe the smell

Some other pictures can be seen at http://www.geocities.com/poberbeck/whitnallhunt.htm

As you guessed on the other site (where the link goes), those are Cortinarius. The cobweb stuff is called a "cortina", and it's where the genus gets its name. Unfortunately, Cortinarius are almost all extremely difficult to identify accurately to species.

Happy mushrooming!
