The stipes are indeed smooth and glabrous and streaky-brown, which is consistent with X. affine. X. purpureum is similar in appearance but the color is reddish-brown. The wrinkled caps here are blackish with some purple mixed in close to the margin. I think proposing Xanthoconium as an alternate generic hypothesis makes sense here.

looks like Xanthoconium.
