It looks like a Cortinarius anomalus group with a viscid cap?

The color and shape and lack of bruising rule out C. occidentalis. I have never seen C. salorbut it comes up in checklists in the Pacific Northwest. I would be helpful if someone with a little more experience with this species could comment.
