This doesn’t seem to match any. Caespitose clump, with relatively thick stipe. Also stipe seems to be swollen beneath cap, but narrows near attachment to substrate. Hope this helps.

I don’t know details,

I think this may be a Micromphale. Please see MO47196 and also here.

Not a Gymnopus I could identify at M.O.

There are several Gymnopus with similar stipe colorations, but no indication of a veil, and no white on the edges of the gills like this has. Still stumped, but thanks for the possibility.
