This is a relative of Cortinarius montanus, originally described from Oregon. This species here is common in the high Sierra in mossy habitat and I have several collections. Actually, of all our western species this one is the closest relative to Cortinarius scaurus as interpreted by trusted European sources…

The veil remnants are prominent in many Phlegmaciums. In some cases they are so thick that look like a coccora – Cortinarius calyptratus comes to mind. I have many photos. In some rare cases they may a leave a sac-like remnant around the bulb, but this is rare..
This cort looks like it has a volva!
