External description

The abnormal webcap (Cortinarius anomalus) has a fruiting body, consisting of a leg and a cap. Initially, its cap is characterized by a bulge, but in mature mushrooms it becomes flat, dry to the touch, silky and smooth. The color of the mushroom cap is initially grayish-brown or gray, and its edge is characterized by a bluish-purple color. Gradually, the cap turns reddish brown or brown.

The mushroom leg is 7-10 cm long and 0.5-1 cm in girth. It is cylindrical in shape, has a thickening at the base, in young mushrooms it is full, and in mature mushrooms it becomes empty from the inside. It is whitish in color, with a brown or purple tint. On the surface of the mushroom leg, you can see the fibrous, light remains of a private bedspread.

The mushroom pulp is well developed, has a whitish color, and a slightly purple tint on the stem. It has no smell, but the taste is soft. The hymenophore is represented by plates adherent to the inner surface of the cap, characterized by a large width and frequent location. Initially, the plates are grayish-purple in color, but as the fruit bodies mature, they become rusty-brown. They contain spores of the fungus of a wide oval shape, measuring 8-106-7 microns. At the end, the spores are pointed, have a light yellow color, and are covered with small warts.
