You have (had) the mushroom, and the opportunity to search for pictures and descriptions to see if it matches (and that’s how you become an expert – in time).
All I have is the pictures..

Up to me?

Aww, shucks. I don’t have the expertise, I’m afraid. Not for little grey ones.

Good question

I imagine that eastern Ontario and Scandinavia have a lot of mushrooms in common. This small, grey, anonymous waxcap is abundant here at this time of year, and there’s really no other species to mix up with it. But I only called it “promising”. It’s up to you to check if the name suits :-)

How did you make that id, given it’s a pretty anonymous little grey one?
