To identify Conocybe, without seeing the caulocsytidia on the stem, I wouldn’t even be able to tell you the correct key to try. :)

On C. subovalis, from flora agaricina neerlandica 6.

“Typical basidiocarps of Conocybe subovalis may be recognised in the
field by their large size and the pileus colour with olivaceous tone, in
particular when dry. However, smaller basidiocarps without olivaceous
colours can only be identified by microscopical characters, in particular
the large cheilo- and caulocystidia with broad capitulum, relatively
large spores, and usually the positive ammonia reaction.”

I found an image that looks as close to this specimen called Conocybe ovalis. When I search for it here the search brings up Conocybe subovalis which does not look like this one.
