Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hello, I know, I know, Cortinarius can be a nightmare for the beginner but I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Found at the base of Quercus,from the spores I am thinking C. splendens or C. oreanus, details below. Thank you.

1. Cap : 3cm across, tan, floccose, inrolled margin, no ring present.
2. Gills : Chocolate in older specimen, Fine white hairs on the gills ( but could be fungal attack ). Adenexed
3. Stipe : As cap, 35mm x 15mm Signs of Cortina. Mustard yellow when cut.
4. Smell : Strongly astringent
5. Spore print : Rust
6. Spores Lemon pip shaped, 8.2 x 5.7 microns
