photo matching, without any details about the mushroom?

from a species first described in Europe?

I see this mushroom (a Gymnopus with a smooth dark stipe) all the time in Huckleberry. It has a strong, foul odor.
Bojantchev also lists it as a very common inhabitant of the woodchip beds at the Berkeley Marina. According to Desjardin (at least a couple of years back) it is an undescribed species. Where has that changed?

Thanks Darv, a new one for me

and it does match the photos at least, on Mykoweb. I wasn’t all that comfortable with F. velutipes but that was all that looked close. Not a lot of info available for this species??
