Monday Mushroom # 19

Cortinarius alboviolaceus
There are many, many species of cortinarius and most are very difficult to tell apart - but this one, with its curious, silvery-purple skin is usually quite distinctive.

Some cortinarius mushrooms are deadly poisonous, in fact I suspect that one of the most common types growing around here is Cortinarius rubellus, but I couldn't be sure, as there are so many other reddish-orangeish-brownish cortinarius species in the books.
Cortinarius rubellus?
