and as far as I could tell it did not have green colored spores or gills.

Looks correct to me.

C. rachodes is a litter and straw decomposer, often found in grassy conditions. The stipe is chocolate-toned, as shown. Much darker than the more common (at least in my area) C. brunneum, which also stains reddish-brown to brown, especially near the base of the stipe, when scratched with a fingernail. C. rachodes will also turn rapidly chocolate-brown with handling, even when sporocarps are in a very young stage, as these are.
