I’d go for aff. whitei on this (that would include pudica, armeniaca and geophylla var. lateritia if they aren’t properly understood).
Inocybe pudica is described with slimmer spores and cystidia, I don’t know much about the others.

I would have called it Inocybe whitei if I had found it here i Scandinavia..
