Telamonia     Subgenus

Cortinarius husseyiKey to Gilled Mushrooms     Key
This is a key to gilled mushrooms, that is, mushrooms having a definite cap with a fertile surface consisting of gills. The fruiting body usually also has a stem, although that may be lateral or absent (usually, then, the mushroom is growing from wood). You can use this key to identify mushrooms that you find.

TricholomaAgaricales     Order

Telamonia     Subgenus     Fries

Cortinarius armillatus



A lot of these are light brown or yellow. If your Telamonia doesn't key out convincingly, it may be a Leprocybe. Or, given that I don't have 1100 entries of Cortinarius in here, it may just not be in this database

Or it may be new to science..

Narrow down your identification:
