A big Marasmius?

Reminds me of Marasmius nigrodiscus and Marasmiellus cystidiosus. But Rhodocollybia is reasonable. The stipe texture is interesting.

I guess…

Well, I might put in a vote for Rhodocollybia from the photos…

not sure

I have no idea what they are, everyone said Clitocybe but they also said that they had never seen it before.

Sure of Clitocybe?

Were people sure of Clitocybe here? The stipe is also getting a little reddish? Maybe these could Rhodocollybia also?

It definitely smells like a Clitocybe, but its a real mild odor.

No particular smell?

Well, I guess it would have been named if it had..
It looks like a darkening stem on this one, so I would have started to check possibilities around Clitocybe metachroa (there are some varieties described, and dicolor is a synonym).

Which one?

Which Clitocybe is this? None of the identifiers had any idea.
