you mention that, I came back to the site 5 times already searching for Alnus trees, and failed to find them every single time. It was winter when I found this mushroom and trees lacked leaves, so it was harder, but I doubt it’s any Alder present there.

Mushroom had Psilocybe vibe to it and I’m pretty sure it’s Hymenogastraceae sp, but definitely not Psilocybe.
I consulted the literature and every single Galerina sp seemed wrong, and spore color was way off.

Species I suggested is common in eastern Europe, and match this shroomie very well, but further research is needed. I saved spore prints so maybe sometime in the future I take this further with microscopy or something.

Thanks for your comment !

Alnicola\Naucoria is predominantly associated with Alder, but don’t thinks is strictly confined to it though. Not sure
