Waxcap Mushrooms of ENA mentions the fragile context. Lack of lubricous feel to cap surface weighs against lacmus. I think this is canescens.

Spore print color is not listed for canescens in WMENA.

No spore drop… or else I would have noted the color here.

Nice collection?

I have seen this before, and the collection had a pink spore print, if my memory is correct?

Texure of the cap context…

was somewhat brittle, which does not remind me of Laccaria. Otherwise, it looks soemwhat like a Laccaria.
