Could be R. alutacea

See my recent observation 14107. In Aurora, the species is somewhat variable, and specimens with this dark a cap are also mentioned in the description. But without a specimen in hand, probably not possible to give a positive identification. Certainly looks similar, though: straw-colored gills, stipe and flesh not bruising, dark purplish-colored center, striate edges, etc.
