Weird one, not sure what to say. Also like the tiny veil remnant on the stipe there. And the stipe is farily dark, darker from the base. Not completely sure what to do with this one. Interesting.

It’s a Galerina

Found cystidia, added microscopy.

I suspected Galerina too and looked for cystidia, but didn’t find any. Also
looked at spores in Melzer’s, but didn’t see they looked much different there
than when mounted in water.
