I’ve seen M. nigripes before, the caps seem to be smaller relative to the stalks, and the stalks longer & darker. Also considered Oudmansiella mucida, but these don’t have rings, and it seems those only appear on birch. Don’t have room for a scope in my apartment …

if a scope is handy

this is an easy ID. Tetrapyrgos spores: “triangular to pyramidal” (sometimes looking like pirate hats). Marasmius spores: “long lacrymoid to subfusiform, smooth” [MykoWeb]

for what it’s worth, I’m used to seeing Tetrapyrgos stipes more consistently dark at all stages. Yours are stark white when young.
