It cannot be Clitocybe

Clitocybe does not have cyanophilous spores.

I agree with Irene about the gills.

Especially for the one cap which appears to not have opened completely, one would expect to see crowded gills with notched attachment for Lepista irina.

I doubt

Lepista irina. It’s a species with very crowded, and not decurrent, gills.

I would have guessed Lyophyllum. Possibly belonging to Clitocybe or Lepista, depending on how you choose to delimit the genera, but I do not beleive it’s irina.
