How about a Cortinarius?

Any chance on a cortinarius ID? Not much to go on, the only hope may be the globula spores because I don't think the body colour gives much away. Found in open birch woodland. C. anomalus looks similar but I suppose many, many others do as well.

Thanks????

Oh yes, you're in the right area!

With the sparse, whitish veil remnants on the stem and pale cap colour, I might also consider C.albocyaneus.... However, these species are a bit of a mess - This is an excerpt from a 2016 key (it's basically the whole key to the Anomalus-group):

Universal veil brown; in coniferous forests, associated usually with Picea on nutrient-rich soil, often in young stands and plantations …C. caninus

Universal veil yellow ochre or ochraceous white; in other habitats …other species of section Anomali. Since only a fraction of the true diversity of the section is included in the current paper and many species still remain undescribed, a more detailed key to the species is not possible to provide at the moment


Cheers,
Nick

Thanks Nick - a bit of confusion with that group as you say.
