''Cortinarius violaceus'' is a mushroom in the genus ''Cortinarius''. It is the type species of the genus, but is distinguished from other species due to its dark colouration and distinct cystidia. Though edible, its primary appeal is its appearance, as it is the darkest mushroom in the genus, comparable only with members of other genera.
