Observation 177226: Cortinarius subgenus Telamonia (Fr.) Trog

Smooth cap looked dark brown /pale black without a hint of blue. I believe the blue in the photo may be a reflection from the sky / green canopy or an artifact from the dappled sunlight (which looks like an orange stain on the cap). The color is not due to age as very small fb nearby were the same color. All other parts of the mushrooms were essentially the same color.

Not I. calamistrata; not I. tahquamenonensis

The spores

on the cobweb on stipe and at the margin are not spores, they are just ‘cobweb’, ie. cortina fibrils that are often very silvery and pale in this subgenus

Thanks Jacob

The spores on the cobweb at the margin and on the stipe look very pale – you still like Cortinarius? I agree that C. is a better suggestion than Inocybe; I was a little shocked by the dark color…,
