the pruina is almost white, the cap below it is buff to greyish brown in the C. rivulosa i know..
But I’m not saying that this is Clitocybe rivulosa, only that it reminds of it.

C. rivulosa is white, though, is it not? Along with C. dealbata and C. dilatata.

the white cover on the cap surface, which is still there at the margin.
The second picture shows it well.
This mushroom resembles a Clitocybe species with that feature, possibly Clitocybe rivulosa or something similar.

It’s about the what? :)
