Flammulaster as a genus will probably not hold in the current circumscription. Some species will go to Tubaria. But as far as i know there is not a comprehensive phylogenetic study of the whole group, yet.
but, back to this one – it looks like it could be close to the European species F. muricatus.

trichoderm vs. epithelium

Flammulaster have an epithelium, so the pileipellis consists of rounded cells, thus a more granular cap surface. Phaeomarasmius has a trichoderm; a shaggier or more tufted appearance due to the hyphae that stick out from the pileipellis.

So this looks like Flammulaster to me.
