Based on the spore shape, this is C. multifformis and not C. calimorphus — not to feel bad though — the European equivalent of C. calimorphus, C. polimorphus was mistaken by one of the leading Cortinariologists of France, Henry for C. multiformis… and stayed like this for many years until he corrected himself many years later. This is why looking at the spore shape helps in this case. Good job Ron.
