Using Champions du Suisse tome 5 the id is fairly clearly C. elegantior, and people at SMG meeting agreed with this.
The micro-shot is of spores from the veil at 1000x in KOH. The spores are ellipsiod, pointed, brown, warted. The size is apr. 13 × 8 um.
The spores match well with sources for Cortinarius elegantior.
