as you describe the consistency as being quite tough, it may well represent a species of Parthenope or even Encoelia, as in the Encoelioideae there are species which very much look like a Mollisia.
If you have a microscope it would be important to check the paraphyses in living state, wether they contain a refractive vacuolar body or not.
Be it as it is, I would be very interested in recieving dried material, and probably can do some molecular research in this collection.

I am not an expert, but I doubt it’s M.cinerea

Mollisia are gentle, soft fungus, sometimes downy on the bottom. This mushroom has the appearance of an acorn cup with thick walls, rough bottom and smooth upper side.
