Did you collect this, I think you’ll find it has white or pale violaceous spores, the fibrous texture of the stipe is much more like that of Laccaria than it is Cortinarius, Dermocybe is or was considered a subgenus of Cortinarius as far as I know.

Michael, I just had a quick look, and the fungi I was thinking of was Cortinarius sp.

Comment for MW

Michael, I have I think photographed these before. I wasnt really sure about the naming after I put it up. It did look right with my field guide,. I will go through the previous entries and see if I can find it. Again, you could be right. Will get back to you. Chow, kk

This doesn’t look like a Cortinarius, it looks like it probably has white spores, maybe a Laccaria species.
