Cortinarius trivialis --- Girdled Webcap

Cortinarius trivials is one of the few of this genus that I can name as it is so distinctive.  It has an extremely glutinous cap and stipe --- the slime dries forming rings on the stipe hence the common 'English' name.

This Cortinarius is mycrrhizal with Willows and was seen at the 'Ashpits' -- Burry Port Community woodland where it is found most years.  It has been found in Pembrey country Park on occasions --- always close to Willow.
