Are they pinkish staining?

There are several species of Marasmiellus and Tetrapyrgos which fit this general shape and stature. If you can confirm that the coloration here isn’t a play of the light, and that these are in fact pinkish staining, I think this might be Marasmiellus candidus. Otherwise, there are Tetrapyrgos which are similar except for spore shape. See:


Of course, if these are really pinkish-staining, we can skip over that.
