This species, one of the many look-alikes of C. sanguineus Fr., is in the pipeline to be published as the n.sp. Cortinarius cruentoides. It appears the name C: cruentus is preoccupied (described from France).
As Mike says, C. cruentus also slightly more robust, even if smaller than most Dermocybe.
The complexity of this group was highlighted in Gasparini’s and my paper in the latest JEC Journal: Europe and the South Pacific: A comparison of two Cortinarius floras. It can be accessed on my site:
I checked with an expert on Sth Pacific Dermocybe, Bruno Gasparini in Trieste, and it is likely that the species found in various Kunzea habitats around Auckland is conspecific with Cortinarius cruentus Gasp., not yet published. It deviates from C. vinicolor by spore and habitat differences. The species figured as C. cf. vinicolor in my book is most likely also C. cruentus.
