Most of the info I have found on Pseudoclitocybe cyathiformis is seen here in MO observations. This obs certainly looks like many of these. In fact, you suggested the same ID for a collection I posted back in 2009 that looks exactly like the ones seen here. I should check my own records! Thanks.

The best match I have found…

seems to be Clitocybe avellaneialba.

But this is reported as a west coast NA species. Some of the spores for this obs do appear to tend toward spindle-shaped.
