Cortinarious species: most of which are toxic. Brown spored, found in the forest, cobwebby veil that collapses and leaves a brownish ring on the upper stem.

yep. there aren't too many purple mushrooms, man.
my first bet would be cortinarius species, which has rusty brown spores, and it has a cobweblike veil that disintegrates, but leaves remnants of fiber on the stem.
taking a spore print is described in the first posts at the top of the forum which states "READ THIS BEFORE POSTING"
if i knew even basic info about the mushroom besides the blurry ass pics, i might be able to tell you the odds that it might be lepista nuda or maybe even cortinarius violaceus.
prolly very poisonous, though.
definitely not active.

As others have already noted:
Those are Corinarius, subgenus Sericeocybe. There are several species that look like those. None of them are active, and none are recommended for eating. In 1997 I asked Meinhard Moser (the current world expert on Cortinarius) about edibility of these and he said he wouldn't eat any of them. Almost nobody can accurately identify them and there are deadly poisonous Cortinarius, so don't eat them. The poison can take up to two weeks before there are any symptoms, then you have kidney damage (or failure) - a nasty way to die.

If you want a species to try looking up, try Cortinarius alboviolaceus. Note that the main reason we don't recommend these for eating is that they are *very* difficult to identify accurately to species. Besides, I know some people who have eaten some Cortinarius, and none of them thought they were good.

Happy mushrooming!
