Observation 60617: Cortinarius traganus (Fr.) Fr.

These were growing near chinkapin and huckleberry.
The spores were ~ 8.0-8.5 X 4.9-6.0 Microns and moderately rough.
They had a very distinctive odor, mostly unpleasant, but I can’t put a name on it.
C. subfoetidus may be close but I don’t see a “sock” on the stem.

I’ll see if I’m lucky enough to find some fresh specimens this year.

an image of cross section , there are not so many Cotinarius with that flesh color, it would confirm pretty easily.

I have to agree with Noah that these are

most likely C. traganus, although somewhat odd in color, probably due to the unique habitat.
I had an earlier collection from the same spot http://mushroomobserver.org/119637
which looked a little more traditional.
