Recognized by sight: looks good for a Phaeocollybia, but I don’t see any details or images that suggest P. carmanahensis, which is a synonym of P. oregonensis.

P. carmanahensis is deemed to be equal to P. oregonensis, with P. oregonensis taking preference. P. oregonensis was named by A.H. Smith and Trappe in Mycologia 64: 145, 1972. P. carmanahensis was not named until 1993 by Redhead & Norvell, in Mycotaxon 46: 343-359, 1993.

I don’t really understand why MO insists that P. carmanahensis is preferred to P. oregonensis. P. oregonensis is earlier.

Here’s one coincidence then.

Holotype of P. oregonensis found at top of Larch Mountain, same place this was found.
