I immediately thought Simocybe when I saw it as well…

but my ID compatriots, fine local mycologists, convinced me otherwise.

You know what? I think we’re both right! I never got a spore print, so the spores coulda been brown not white. The rest all fits, including the spore shapes as per Kuo.

I’ll even go as far as Simocybe centunculus here.

Thanks for that confirmation.

spore data added.
