Any ideas on this rather strikingly coloured cortinarius, from variecolores section (if that still exists). Interesting that many of the purplish cortinarius occur in uk under beech on chalk but at this location there are no beech trees within hundreds of miles and no chalk.
it was a mixture of conifers and poplar/birch with a few other broadleaves. natural vegetation for that area.
