Cortinarius talimultiformis

Cortinarius talimultiformis is fairly typical of /Multiformes in the yellow-brown cap, relatively squat stature, white to grey-white young gills and white context. The species in this section are hard to differentiate - . While the type description differentiates Cortinarius talus (deciduous forest) from Cortinarius talimultiformes (Picea and Abies) on the basis of habitat, in our region Cortinarius talus is found in conifer forest too.

Cortinarius aff. atrosquamosus

Recent work on Cortinarius section Leprocybe (Ammirati et al, 2020) has described many new species and given us new insight on the diversity of North American species. One of these is Cortinarius arosquamosus, discussed here.

Cortinarius armeniacus

Cortinarius armeniacus is not often collected in our region, but is likely overlooked due to inconspicuous colors and general neglect of Cortinarius species. It can be recognized by the smooth to shiny, hygrophanous yellow to chestnut-brown cap with white margin, firm whitish-drab stipe and convex cap with low umbo

Cortinarius fructuodorus

Cortinarius fructuodorus is best recognized by the Cortinarius traganus-like fruity pear odor for which it is named, overall brown (or slightly purple-brown tones) and spores in the range of 8.5-10 x 5.0-6.0 microns. This species is one of several larger pale Telamonia in our region which need further study.

Cortinarius pitkinensis

Cortinarius pitkinensis is a yellow-to-orange gilled Dermocybe known to occur at higher elevation in mossy drainages. It is likely to be misidentified as Cortinarius croceus or Cortinarius cinnamomeus - the most widely known names for yellow and orange-gilled Dermocybe. As it happens, there are many similar species which are challenging to differentiate.
