''Cortinarius erythraeus'' is a basidiomycete fungus of the genus ''Cortinarius'' native to Australia.

English botanist Miles Joseph Berkeley described this species as a "blood red" mushroom, "clothed with a thick gelatinous coat" in 1845, from the writings and specimens of James Drummond, from the vicinity of the Swan River Colony in Western Australia. The species name is derived from the Ancient Greek word ''erythros'' "red". John Burton Cleland described ''Cortinarius ruber'' in 1928.. more
