sez Simocybe is the correct current name.

This one looks a little more grey, and the cap is a little olive. This one might be Simocybe. The other one is a yellow-brown, and the gills more just brown, not grey-brown, and the other one looks more Tubaria, probably an unknown Tubaria (if any one is going to break down and study the brown Tubarias, it might get a name someday…). It might be good to compare the cystidia, since the other one had such distinctive cystidia.

Looks Just Like #26956

Which Douglas says is a Tubaria. That was the direction I was leaning too
