Description:
line

Of the three known purple Cortinarius, this is the smallest, with the scales on the cap being much finer, almost silky. These also have smaller spores than the other two purple species, C. carneipallidus and C. kioloensis cortinarius in NZ. Recently, DNA has been looked at, which confirms that this is not a described species.
