Looks like…

These kinda look like really young dried out H. hypothejus. Which can have a grey-brown cap right at the start (with a bit of the yellow-orange color). At least here in the west. Then as the cap expands the grey-brown stays on the disc, and the margin starts to show the yellow-orange, and in some cases bright red-orange. And this one has a full glutenous veil, which looks like a cortine breaking when dry as the cap expands. At least here in the west, in the east and in Europe it seems that H. hypothejus just sticks with a yellow-brown cap the whole way through.

purpurascens, for one.
