Observation 135212: Cortinarius (Pers.) Gray

In ground under duff near Douglas-firs; solitary
Cap: diameter 5cm; cuticle peelable
The line just under the cap looks like a 2 mm incision scored around the stem. In light of this, not sure how to describe the gill attachment.
Spore print: light brown, almost chocolate
Stem: length 7 cm, diameter 2.5 cm, fibrous (no peelable cuticle)
Taste: bitter, but does not linger

Not Agaricus, Agaricales which is a bit more precise than Fungi.

Cap not separable

Thanks for again for your help with an ID.
As I am mentioned I’m trying to learn to identify, so I wonder if you can say what about the pictures makes you suggest Agaricus?
I not that the cap is not easily separable from the stem, and I could not see any sign of a ring. (Perhaps you are seeing ring remnants which I am missing.)
