The one you comment on from Ron is certainly G. clavata. Or at least the closest thing we have to G. clavata. But I wish you go the whole stipe in the photo on this one. The cap here is more strictly conical, and you usually see that in G. vittaeformis. The stipe is very different in the two, where G. clavata has a near colorless stipe coated with a fine white hyphae, and G. vittaeformis has a fairly smooth even stipe the color of the cap when young, but darkening from the base to a coffee brown in age. Can’t tell with this photo could be either really.
