You know the Genus and the Subgenus — Cortinarius/Phlegmacium.

This is one of the typical ones that we have that fall between Section Caerulescentes and Glaucopodes (small spored). I have a plethora of these. We need to know the odor too as some are fragrant like grapes. The very Cort you brought me a couple of nights ago had the same paling blue to brown cap and fragrant odor. Oh, and they also have very distinctly limoniform spores, like snowshoes. Will post some photos later.

Its Cortinarius. Which subgenus?

This is a stumper!

Is this a Blewit? Lepista nuda, or if those are pinkish spores on top of the cap then Entoloma bloxhamii? or a Cortinarius (but the veil is all gone!)

What was the shape of the spores, could it be a Cortinarius species or something in the Entolomataceae?
