Notes: Large crowded group of small brown mushrooms growing on wood-chips.
Damp caps up to about 3 cm across, brown, conical with radial lines, white at margin. Changed to lighter brown as the caps dried from the centre.
Brown/grey adnate gills with pinkish edges, about 20 met stem with several tiers of shorter intermediate gills.
Stem 7 cm x 3 mm, hollow, brittle, silky off-white with woolly fibres at base.
Black spore print.
Spores were smooth, oval, brown in Melzer’s (dextrinoid), thick-walled, large apical germ pore, 11-13 × 5.5-7 microns (40 spores measured).
Pleurocystidia were 32-38 × 11-12 microns (only 2 measured).
Cheilocystidia (utriform/lageniform) were 20-25 × 8-10 microns (7 measured).

I see how you got there now and it actually even looks promising, however Part G of the key is very confusing & headache inducing…
Is it possible you could add your additional gill close ups showing the pinkish gills to this observation? :)
To be honest, I’m never confident about identifying any fungus apart from a nice fresh Amanita muscaria, but the account of my ID of this example is recorded here: http://www.wildaboutbritain.co.uk/...
I tried the key & I came up with P. magnispora, but I’m not entirely convinced of that…
