There are close to one thousand species in the Cortinarius genus. They can be recognized by the cap and threads, which become reddish brown as falling spores accumulate. They grow in coniferous and hardwood forests, and are common in the summer and fall. Many are poisonous, and it's difficult to identify all species, so beware!
