About 35mm wide and 40mm tall. The under view revealed the last few net-like remains of the cortina still clinging on to the stipe.. In an open, dry sclerophyll eucalyptus based forest. Cardinia nature reserve.
Possibly C archeri but the stipe is not common

  1. Tom May  This was originally id as Cortinarius archeri, but this is more robust and would have a slimy partial veil and quite slimy pileus and stipe surface. There are quite a few purple species of Cortinarius.
