For example, there are photos of M. megaspora, M. robusta, M. parabolica, even M. maculata, that look similar.

I was voting on the basis of macromorphological likeness to what I have seen and scoped to great certainty as M. abramsii (Observation 47428). Granted, that was in California, and this is in Wisconsin, which I hadn’t noticed until now. What are some other possibilities?

With only photos available, how can you be so confident in your id? There are other similarly colored lignicolous Mycena species. I’m still having troubles with them, even with microscopic info.
