Cortinarius symeae – Russet Rozites

On the ground or in litter in wet eucalypt forests of south-west WA. The very slimy cap is initially purple-brown but ages to brown. Small white patches of veil remnants are found on young caps. Other characteristics include the impressive membranous striate ring on the stem and rusty-brown gills and spore print.
