Nice. The widely sinuated gills do look more like Tricholoma indeed (now that i look at it again).

Tricholoma. White spores.

Perhaps regularly confused…

…because a lot of the Inocybe have quite pale gills when young.

However, in this case, the first-impression identification went the opposite direction: http://mushroomobserver.org/1168?search_seq=1048240 (see Doug’s notes).

Yeah, looks like one of the little grey Tricholomas.

Maybe T. myomyces.

didn’t take a spore print, just assumed Inocybe from the radially fibrillose cap…

but with those broadly notched gills, could be a bad assumption! I’ll do a spore print, but I think that you are correct…

Are you really sure

that this one has brown spores? If not, I’d say Tricholoma sp.
