Fan6 claims Agrocybe paludosa = A. elatella, mycobank doesn’t say one way or another and considers Agrocybe paludosa (J.E. Lange) Kühner & Romagn. ex Bon as a legitimate name…

Will try some KOH on the cap tomorrow and take some time to look at the spores
From the descriptions, this looks more like agrocybe to me.
