for the suggestions.

The two Infundibulicybe species I know about are I. gibba and I. squamulosa. Each of these mushrooms has cap with depression, even in young specimens. Also, these type mushrooms are generally larger and more robust than the ones in this collection.

I think we can rule out Entoloma based upon the white spore print and the spore shape, definitely not angular. I think I have a good enough photo to post later today.
