A confusing species

Neither laniger nor bivelus is supposed to have this lilac veil, although it’s obvious in some other pictures on the web. I don’t beleive it’s laniger, but I’m not sure of bivelus either. In my keys I’m ending up with solis-occasus then, but I do not agree with that either. It should have a darker brown cap. So, I think we may be dealing with more than one “bivelus” species..

yes, you’re right

The gills were orange brown. There were scattered birch trees there too.

Emma L. Nezdojminogo (1983, 1996) simply states that this species grows “in coniferous woods”. Not sure why though, because in other online sources birch is mentioned.

Could this be C. laniger instead, which is mentioned by her as a similar species?

Looks a lot like

Cortinarius bivelus (I can see seeds and leaves of birch..).
Should have bright orange brown gills then.
