Can you provide any notes on substrate and habitat? I’m sure it’s too late for a specimen at this point, but for the future if you see this again please dry it.
The strongly adnexed, nearly free lamellae indicate Hygrocybe subgenus Hygrocybe. The pileus that is perforated in the center is typical of sect. Pseudofirmae, which is by far the most common section in tropical South America. This does not appear to match any described species, so it is likely new to science.
