These do alike but there other options and in South America there are several unidentified Marasmius on Mushroom Obs. Marasmius fulvoferrugineus is a similar species of the Southeastern US. I don’t know its southern range. M. siccus and M. pulcherripes are typically found in more Northern regions. There aren’t any on this site from South America.

Are Marasmius siccus and M. pulcherripes out of range for Brazil? It looks like one of those parasol Marasmius at least.

A shot of the underside is often necessary for identification. If you can get a bit closer that would help as well.

like Marasmius siccus, but as far as I know, M. siccus’s range is to the Mississippi Vallry.
