Fruiting among deciduous oak, bay. Large for a psathyrella. Pileus 6.8cm across, stipe 1.8cm wide at apex. Total height 7.5cm. Gills were tan, decurrent and wide spaced. Note the orange “hairs” above the annulus. When I pulled away the duff surrounding it, the stipe was covered with white “skin?” that peeled away to reveal solid brown.
Cortinarius definitely a better fit. Arora’s key suggests C. laniger group based on the information I have.
I’ve added a picture of the gills and the pileus (a day later) from the top. I failed to get a focused image of the stipe. Drat.
