as microscopy seems to show, then could be something of a missing link.

Was this terrestrial or lignicolous?

Some photos appear to show the cap separating from the stipe. This suggests the fungus is not sequestrate, but merely very young. The white residue near where the annulus might be suggests some affinity for Cortinarius as well. Would be interested in seeing any microscopy available as well.

There also appears to be predation upon the immature sporocarps, largely targeting the gill and pileus area. Perhaps this is one of those rarer species which relies on slugs and other invertebrate species for ingestion and dispersal.
