Cortinarius nettieae Ammirati, C.L. Cripps, Liimat., Niskanen & Dima, Mycological Progress 20 (11): 1427 (2021)
Note: This is a recently described species, named for the late Nettie Laycock. I refer you to the type description until I have time to detail these collections fully.
It is worth reading about the phylogenetics of C.nettieae vs others in sub-section Tabularis (of which it is part) for interesting discussion of the way genetics factors into species ID. This species has a low degree of difference to other species in the section but a high degree of consistency (very low intraspecific variation). Indeed, my sequence is an exact match to the type MZ580442.1
