These do look like micaceus.

But there appears to be no deliquescence, and I my understanding of this species is that it is a true “inky”. But I just now checked Roody who characterizes the gills as “partially dissolving.” Is it possible that when conditions are sufficently dry, C. micaceus will dehydrate in situ rather than deliquesce? The ones in this collection do seem to be too robust for disseminatus. But the centers of the caps are honey yellow.

Fruit bodies are likely too old/weathered to get a real good macro – read.
