that deal with casimiri, say spores 10-11.5 × 6-7 μm, distant gills, cap sometimes blackening in spots, gills pale reddish brown, stem sometimes bluish at the top, bruising pinkish near the base, and the base often with a small, hard bulb.
This doesn’t look too different:

Maybe this isn’t it, but certainly not uraceus (spores (8-)8.5-9.5 × 5-5.5(-6) μm, gills chocolate brown, stem and veil greyish, often with a greenish hue etc..

not Cortinarius casimiri

As I understand Cortinarius casimiri, it is quite common in fall, has longer spores, remnants of veil on the cap margin, and bands on the stipe. OC

The same as obs 67032. Can’t tell what it is, but I still don’t beleive in uraceus. A bluish tint on top of the stem, and a bit too large spores, suggest something else, maybe something around Cortinarius casimiri.
