My reasons for not proposing “Hygrocybe”.

First, this looks somewhat like the mushrooms grouped into Cuphophyllus. However, this seems like a stretch for this slender thin-fleshed mushroom with barely decurrent gills.

But also, aside from the innately streaky cap surface, this looks somewhat like Hygrocybe marginata var. concolor. So I wonder if the genus name “Humidicutis” applies.
