A very rare Cortinarius (fewer than 10 records nationally) growing around a hardwood stump (beech?). Thanks to its photo in Roger Phillips' book surprisingly easy to identify, and confirmed by the microscopy, and further confirmed by Michael Jordan. Not particularly distinctive macroscopically - the caps are a sort of biscuity-brown becoming more orange in larger specimens, covered in a 'bloom' of fine silvery fibres making them seem paler; the cap edges are long inrolled; young ones with the usual white cortinas. 1st Notts record.
