cap surface speaks against my proposals. Caps should be much more woolly.
This is one of umpteen possible Inocybes. Even with knowing the form of the spores it would be difficult. You also have to look at the kaulocystidia and cheilocystidia amongst other things.
A good thing in photoing Inocybe would be a close-up of the stipe (it is a very important feature to see whether it is pruinose in the upper third, pruinose down to the middle, completely pruinose or not pruinose at all.
From macroscopic view only this reminds me a bit of the group around I. lucifuga but that should have a longer stipe is more maroon to darkbrown and growing in other habitats. I suspect this to be a sand loving Mediterranean one and I have not the slightest idea about Mediterranean-Atlantic Inocybe species.

This a very common here

It is small (<4cmm cap diam. normally 2-3 cm). I’m going to add more photos. And I find them since Autumn till now.

just a very wild guess:

Inocybe aghardii OR Inocybe dulcamara.

But cap should be more fibrillose to pseudosquamulose and smell either indistinct or sweetish-bitterish (and taste in dulcamara too but I do not recommend to test Inocybe if you are not very sure about the group where it could belong to!)

Once again, Entoloma and Inocybe without microscope is plainly impossible in most cases.
