Cortinarius armillatus02226

Cortinarius armillatus is plentiful in the northeast. Though edible, few consider it ‘choice'.

Not recommended for collecting by collectors new to mushrooming, since it can be confused with Corts that contain the deadly chemical called orellanine. In fact, according to a recent study (2016), it does contain some orellanine, but in quanties less than 1% of that found in Cortinarius orellanus.
