A new Cortinarius of section Calochroi (Basidiomycota, Agaricomycetes) from Mediterranean Quercus woodlands (Italy).

Abstract

A new species of Cortinarius, C. flavoaurantians sp. nov., is described from Italian Quercus woods based on both morphological and ITS rDNA data. This taxon is characterized by a yellowish pileus and cortina, a white universal veil and a pileipellis that reacts yellow-orange with KOH. Illustrations of the key micromorphological features and fresh basidiomata in situ are provided. Closely related species are discussed.
