Stropharia ambigua

This is not S. ambigua. I’m not sure what it is, it could be Leratiomyces percevalii, though the stipe seems too shiny and the overall colour is too pale. The gill attachment also looks wrong for this species.
It might be a Psathyrella species, though the shape and colour of the cap seems off.

There are no active species of Stropharia.
