Slimy cap fungus?

Any help with id much appreciated! I think it may be a Cortinarius...

Shot of the underside?

What a great picture!

Is there another shot showing the underside?

re: Shot of the underside?

Thanks. But sorry, stupidly I didn't get a shot of the underside, the gills were yellowish and there's a violet tinge to the stem - and the gills on the younger one. I may go and have another look in the morning!
