but seems pretty close. I’ve added an id suggestion just to give your observation a more meaningful place within the genus. I’m almost sure Myxacium as it is now is full of cryptic species :)

please collect it.

It’s a rare, undescribed species we have been calling Cortinarius ‘Winter Blues’. It typically fruits in the midwinter; two+ months after most other Corts have finished fruiting
