According to this, most PWN Typhula (if not Typhula in general) have sclerotia, though some can apparently occur without them. Nothing I’ve read in the PNWKC key is a sure fit for what you have here, at least not without more photos/info.

edit: correction. none of the Typhula seem a good fit. my vote is for an immature M. juncea.

Probably is

M. juncea after a closer look at description of T. sclerotoides. The latter appears to be too short, and the substrate less likely. There is a Jens Petersen photo in Matchmaker that is remarkably similar to your obs. Perhaps it’s misnamed. Image in B&K is less similar.
I didn’t notice a sclerotium…

do you have a photo and/or a good description of the species?
