different Clitocybes that seem to fit the description. It has an OK smell, but a great flavor in a taste test. The stem on smaller specimens often has a bulbous base. I’ve found these growing in large fairy rings. I find them every year here in SW Pennsylvania, and still haven’t gotten a species. Thanks pinonbistro for getting a genus ID!
