totally smooth and bean-shaped or really nodulose-bumpy, but not truly angular-coffin-shaped like Entoloma.

Inocybe spores can occasionally look pretty entolomatoid (if you haven’t seen lots of Entoloma spores):

The easiest thing to do is look for crystal-encrusted cystidia (metuloids).

I had the same thought

When posting, including the possibility of Inocybe. The good news is I have 4 fruit bodies – Entoloma spores are irregular – what do Inocybe spores look like?

Mixed?

Not sure these are all the same. At least image 3 is an Inocybe, I don’t think any are Entoloma, possibly the last one…
