Cortinarius anomalodelicatus is a relatively small and slender anomali that is primarily known from the Western USA, Rockies and Alaska.
In young state, Cortinarius clintonianus should be clearly recognizable as an Anomali - it has typical pallid brownish colors on the dry cap and lilac young gills and upper stipe. However, photographed collections show that the lilac phase is not always visible, or may be transient. Gills of young specimens may appear more pallid, greyish or even clay colored.
