very common is INOCYBE ASTEROSPORA which tends (more than other Inocybe) to get rent from the margin of the cap inwards and is usually bigger and its very rare pendant INOCYBE PSEUDOASTEROSPORA. INOCYBE GODEYI (which this is clearly not) is red-yellow and does redden. INOCYBE ASSIMILATA/UMBRINA I only know from mountaineous areas with spruce and other conifers and it is very dark brown. INOCYBE DECIPIENS usually is bigger and has velum rests in the centre of the cap.

But that list is still incomplete ;)

I cannot give you an ID

for this. No microscope no Inocybe ID in most of the cases.
What is visible here is a big marginate bulb like it can be found in INOCYBE BRESADOLAE (which is a spring species but it is almost purely white and does slowly redden, it is the brother of Inocybe erubescens with a bulb and nodose spores), INOCYBE COOKEI (that should smell like artificial honey and be more yellow), INOCYBE MIXTILIS (which is more brownish-yellow and growing predominantly in woods and later in the season altho I do not know its fruiting periods in the Mediterranean), INOCYBE NAPIPES (which is dark brownish and likely to be found where mixtilis can be seen), INOCYBE PRAETERVISA (reddish-olive) but there are some more. It really is impossible without at least have a look at the spores and the cystidia.
