and it looks like this is not variicolor, which has a good bit of stipe ornamentation, often in orange tones which you do not show here, and blotchy cap coloration.

quite a bit of cap color variability in variicolor, oddly enough

shown here by the one who created this provisional name!


but w/out the deeper details, it is difficult to get many of these grisettes to species, esp. with just a photo to work with.
