Drawing a blank here. Very Crepidotus like including small, nearly round, spiny spores, but there is that substantial, mostly central stipe. Spores are fairly dark reddish brown. Odor is pungent like some kind of cleaning solution. Caps are under 3.5 cm. in diameter. Found at the base of old growth Tsuga heterophylla at the mouth of a rodent hole.

are distinctive. From Largent VI: “Globose to subglobos, pale brownish and echinulate or verruculose, small, with dimensions ranging from 3-5(-6) x 3-5µm”. Otherwise Clitocybe-like, small, spore deposit brownish, whole cap surface with ciliate fibrils or tomentose overall, lamellae decurrent or adnate and brownish with age, stipe mostly ornamented with fine fibrillose scales, habitat on decaying wood, mosses, humus, or soil.

This keyed best to R. tricholoma in Moser.
