Found single fruiting body in mulched flower bed beside Psathyrella candolleana. Might be very faint remnants of fibrillose veil on upper stipe and margi. Not hygrophanous.
Update: spore print dark brown (photo coming), spores somewhere aorund 10 × 5 µm, smooth, with germ pore (photo coming). No cystidia on gill faces, but abundant bowling-pin-shaped thin-walled K- cystidia on gill edges. Pileipellis is… trichoderm maybe? Rather large blocky randomly-arranged cells below the cuticle, transforming rather suddenly into v narrow hyphae parallel to surface, with some hair-like hyphae diverging. Clamp connections present (remarkably obvious in a few places). Nothing was strongly golden in K.

Gills do look nearly free, but there are one or two still barely attached.
The gills look like they’re free or almost free of the stem. That may be a factor in ID.
With spores that dark, it doesn’t look like Psilocybe or Stropharia or Hypholoma (also since there are no pleurocyst.). In Psathyrella there are a number of species that have an epithellium with thin fiberous hyphae on the surface, which maybe you have here. You should check the Psathyrella monograph, without the pleurocystidia something might come up. I just checked on a little guy with pleurocyst., and it was a bit too confusing to figure out a species…
There also seems to maybe be mottling on the on the gill face, Panaeolus was a section of the Psathyrella monograph, you can check there also. I can’t remember if the section Panaeolus was in the part without pleurocyst.
A spore print would help enormously to narrow things down.
