Recognized by sight: It seems to be rather early for Tricholoma species, it is also interesting that they have such conical pointed caps at least when young.

Tricholoma inocybeoides, has been applied to several small species or forms that are close to Tricholoma scalpturatum, a group that stains yellowish when they get old.
One of them, with a distinct umbo, has been interpreted as T. alboconicum, but the description says white gills, and these are more greyish (and I don’t know if they’re going to get yellow stains).
I think more investigation is needed on most of the Tricholoma species, the scalpturatum group as well as the terreum group (and the reddening ones, and the smelling ones…). The micro characters are in most cases not distinct enough to be diagnostic in these groups.

Yes I thought I had fixed them up but I see it did not work I will put a comment on the one that I believe fits the best,
I did use various settings for white balance, found the best one in the view finder but when the camera did flash it changed the WB not sure how to avoid that problem for sure,

What are you shooting with?

I see about 4 different white balances here. Tough to make strict color determinations with so much variation (not that it matters all that much for this observation). If your shooting with a point & shoot without the option to custom preset WB with your own background, pick something relevant to the lighting conditions you’re in at the time of taking the exposure. You can always experiment with several of them, look at each of them on the viewfinder, and decide which preset best represents the color you’re seeing with your naked eye. If you can make your own WB preset, take a white piece of paper and photograph it blank under the same lighting conditions as the mushrooms.

have a look at this observation

it looks very similar to this observation that I made a little earlier this spring, I believe it is the same thing

Okay I took a look

under the scope they (the spores) appear rounded, they do not appear dark under the microscope i.e. they are white or nearly so at least

I will check for a spore print

the gills do not get dark in age so don’t think it is inocybe
