at first I thought Heboloma as well. At some point (prob when you switched your vote, IDK) I looked at them again and noticed the same thing. Not too familiar yet w/ either genus, but I do know that Cortinarius have a cortina and rusty brown spores.

P.S. How does one pluralize cortinarius such as in the sentence above? Cortinarius’ or…? I propose Cortinarii ;)

Overall it looks more like a Hebeloma, but the presence of a rusty brown cortina on the stipe surface favors Cortinarius. I don’t know if hebelomas are “allowed” to have such cortinas. :-)
