Clitocybe clavipes

The width of the stem is variable, and the gills appear more distant when they have dried out and become thinner. That’s what happened with this one. If you pick a fresh one with the same size and count the gills, it won’t differ much.

I considered this ID unlikely, because other mushrooms growing not far away appeared to be C. clavipes (obs. 11895) and had more closely spaced gills and a more club-footed stem than these mushrooms.
