Cortinarius can have gills that are that yellow color, before they get old and turn brown. I would not trust a photograph to give you the color of the spores. Pixeled spore smudges don’t cut it. The collector would need to take an actual spore print and look at the shape of the spores under a microscope. My gut says its not a Hebeloma, but I couldn’t tell you precisely why.

Cortinarius but the gills seem too light for such mature specimens and the spore print is definitely salmon orange not orange brown. If you’re there Emma could you weigh in on this one?

looks to be salmon colored and cap hygrophanous—Entoloma?
