Cortinarius caperatus (Pers.) Fr.,                                                           *Collections: PNW & Idaho

This is one rare example of a Cortinarius with a persistent membranous annulus. Until recently this species was segregated into its own Genus Rozites, but as a result of molecular studies it was determined that it fits well within the Cortinarius clades.
