Well that sounds like Xeromphalina to me… Lets see, well there is this:

There are slight differences in spores sizes there… but looks most probable is X. fulvipes if bitter. Should have rather narrow spores, only 2 um wide. Dimi has an example:

KOH

I put 3% KOH on a fresh specimen and it instantly turned a very dark crimson, then very dark brown.

Are you sure?

How big was this, was it tiny? If you still have a fresh one, put a tiny amount of KOH on a small part of the cap, and see if it goes brick-red. I wonder if this is another of the notched-gill Xeromphalina you see rarely on the northern coast.
