Not brown roll rim.. proper view of the stipe would help

As always several shots are best to even have a hope of identifying a 'shroom, A good clear shot of the stipe and gills from underneath would immediately have elminated chanterelle and shown whether it was one of the cortinarius (like gymnopilus).

Colours are variable, but most brown roll rims are dingier and mottled, especially by the time the rim starts to unroll.
