The distinct spores do help! This is the pale blue form of Cortinarius vanduzerensis — this one caused me a bit of embarrassment in the spring when I misidentified it as something else — it is a late season, early spring fruiter that on the basis of the gene regions is the same as the typical C. vanduzerensis, but is pale bluish all around and I think is associated with tanoak.

Tough to say without spores.

I see 3-4 options. Need some spores.
