You have done a great job at providing detailed micro and macro characters here. What I can say with confidence is that this is not a Clitocybe, or the micrographs you have posted do not correspond to the fungus featured in the photos… or both. If the spores of the micrographs match those of the fungus in the field photos, the spores of this mushroom are much too pigmented to be Clitocybe, which is a light-spored genus.

I notice a prominent apiculus, which could be diagnostic. That’s about where my help must end, I’m afraid, as my knowledge of Maltese fungi is literally zilch. Hopefully someone else will be able to make a more constructive guess as to what this may be.

Side note, what mounting medium/stains did you use for your micrographs?

I would like to detrmine this specimen please? If further data is required, I have the specimen stored.
