The stipe colouration is also very typical of Galerina spp. I would be leaning towrads that for an ID.

seems more indicative of Galerina sp. rather than Deconica sp..

I agree with Deconica sp.

D. phyllogena is often quite similar; especially the subdecurent, crowded lamellae are very typical. They’re very easy to tell from Galerinas microscopically, but in the field the difference is harder to tell. Deconica species have slimier cap cuticle which peels somewhat differently. Also, if I remember correctly, Deconicas have a more or less pleasant weak fungal smell and Galerinas smell mealy.
