I see some innate streakiness toward the margin. But examples of solaniolens I have observed showed more prominent streaks. Also, this one has a very dark cap. Otherwise, solaniolens seems like the best match here. Overall resemblance to (a miniature) brunnescens (except for the stipe base) suggests solaniolens.

This one has been preserved.
