Not sure the spores were black

> Are you sure the spores were black?

No. I assumed they were black because there were mottled black patches on the gills.

I’ll change this one to Cortinarius sp, thanks for noticing.

Doesn’t really look like a Chroogomphus

Are you sure the spores were black? It looks more like a Cortinarius or a Gymnopilus to me. The flesh in the last shot doesn’t look orange enough for Chroogomphus, overall it is paler than most Chroogomphus species and the gills don’t see decurrent enough to me.
