Kerrigan sez close but very probably different. So far, A. perobscurus is only known from sites with Monterey Cypress at about sea level near San Francisco. That proves nothing, but ecologically it’s a long way to Monarch Pass, CO. A. perobscurus is usually slimmer and has darker pileus fibrils, and a fine tomentum below the annulus (at least when young). I suspect your collection has not yet been described.
