While these could well be in the “Cortinariaceae”

family, I don’t think they are any type of Cortinarius.
The spores were brown, not rusty brown and the spores themselves do not look like any kind of Cort, based on shape and lack of ornamentation. Also, they were much lighter in color in KOH under the microscope.
