The defining character is the colour of the gills (lamellae) which have that typical Cortinarius rusty colour from the mature spores. These are a mycorrhizal fungus so there will be some nearby trees, possibly Eucalypt species that will be benefiting. This genus tends to come towards the end of the season, so the timing is another hint, and come in a range of colours from the typical various shades of browns and tans, to deep purple, blue, yellow, white and green and many shades in between.
