No Hebeloma has a membranous annulus like this.
More likely an Agrocybe.

Arora states: “Hebeloma is closeloy related to Cortinarius, but that genus has rust-brown spores and a cobwebby veil (cortina). Some Hebelomas have a cortina, but can be distinguished by their duller spore color and/or the presence of sterile cells (cystidia) on the edges of the gills, plus the frequently powdered or flaky stem apex.”

I guessed Cortinarius because of the color of the deposit on the annulus. (Sorry it doesn’t show well in the photo.)
I did not collect this (because it was in a no-collection area).
Perhaps my guess at the spore color was off? Maybe more chocolate than cinnamon?

Most Cortinarius

have a veil called a cortina: looks like a spider-web. There is one Cortinarius with a more distict annulus, but the gills on this don’t look like Cortinarius caperata, which has a persistent annulus, often flaring.

Did you get a spore print on this? Or how did you identify Cortinarius?
