I agree that Cortinarius looks like a better name, in the absence of other ideas

The place where this was collected is known for Cortinarius species variety collected there. In fact, Purple Cort was growing right next to this one. Spore print came out very poor. It’s dark but I can’t pin down the color.

From what I’ve read the stem can be smooth in age

on S. kaufmanii but the more I think about it Eric’s proposal is better as the cap in your last photo shows some shallow wrinkles and the gills on close up seem to be rusty brown in spots.

PS Also evidence of reddish slime at base of stem in last photo.

Have questions regarding both proposed names:

Cortinarius corrugatus is supposed to have "corrugated-wrinkled’ (Kuo) cap structure.
Stropharia kauffmannii is supposed to have a ring or veil leftover on stem.
