The smallest of the purple Cortinarius that I have found with the scales found on the cap been much finer to almost silky. These also having smaller spores then C. carneipallidus and C. kioloensis the only other two purple cortinarius in NZ. Recently the DNA has been looked at which showed this its not a described species.
