I never found rusty spores on this one, maybe I’m starting to see Cortinarius in everything, even things that aren’t!

Scattered in moss in high-elevation lenga forest, quite common here; CAP 1.5-5 cm, smooth, slimy-sticky; STIPE dry, vivid yellow fibrils over whitish cottony “context”; FLESH whitish, staining yellowish then brownish near base; ODOR none.

Wouldn’t be impossible to find a name on such a beautiful thing with bright yellow veil and gill edges! It certainly looks like a Cortinarius, but I imagine there are other possibilities.
