Not sure if this a Omphalina, but it looks to be some sort of an Omphalinoid mushroom.

The spore print

is taken on a clear back ground. Old x ray film. It is a clear surface so that is the true color. . This is really yellow. I thought that Tubaria has close gills. with brown to ocher spore prints. The Gills on this observation are more distant or at leased sub distant.
