before noticing the milk…

it is recommended to notice if the stipe breaks like a chalk or not.If it does it indicate the Russulales.The stipe doesn’t look fibrous as i would expect it to be if it was a Clitocybe.Anyway some Lactarius have almost transparent latex , so it is sometimes difficult to see it.

It hasnt milk.

I took only those two photos. And besides size, unfortunately, I didnt took any other data. It was only 2cm in diameter. And there were 4-5 fungi near, with same size. So I dont think it is Lactarius.

Has it milk (latex)?

Looks like a small Lactarius, maybe Lactarius decipiens, if with hot milk and milk turning yellowish on air.
If it has no latex I have no idea ;)
