Do you have KOH?

Try it on the cap or even a section of the dried cap.

It looks like Callistosporium but the spore shape and color are way off.

Spores & microscopy

I added some spore pictures and microscopy, not sure how much of it is useful.

I couldn’t find many spores and they had faint and minute cystidia-like formations on their surface (They were barely visible in person, far less in pictures), but were otherwise smooth with no germ pore.

Edit: Also, the cap is not fully hygrophanous like I said, the center faded and the margin darkened.
