Cortinarius

Thanks both - I found a young one this morning and have uploaded shot, showing it is indeed Cortinarius. Although i had also tentatively thought H.crustuliniforme to start with.

Is there any way I can narrow it down further, even just to which group within Cortinarius? There are quite a lot coming up in my lawn to work with.
