Agree Cortinarius, disagree C. collinitus

Assuming it has the right spore color, Cortinarius sp. seems very likely.

However, a primary characteristic of C. collinitus (and that general ‘group’) are bands of material on the stipe. See:

Cortinarius collinitus (Pers.) Fr.
Cortinarius collinitus group
