I had not thought of this for an ID as I had not seen a Cortinarius rotundisporus look this green in terms of cap colour before.

That is quite plausible. I only commented because from the photographs I could not tell where on the tree it was growing (base/ground, branch, trunk, etc) so I just assumed it was removed from the ground.

Perhaps not.

I think it may have been poking through the bark but actually growing from the soil around the base of the tree. I am fairly confident with it being a Cortinarius due to the apparent spore colour on the stipe.

I have removed that from observation comments.

growing on the tree?

Cortinarius don’t grow on wood substrate, so It is probably something else. sorry I can’t be more of a help.
