X. campanella indistinguishable from X. enigmatica without mating studies or DNA

Xeromphalina campanella can be distinguished from X. enigmatica only by mating studies or DNA sequencing. They’re effectively identical in macroscopic features, microscopic features, chemical features, geographic location, and substrate preference.

there is a Xeromphalina key (8 species).
I have no idea if it is complete, but I beleive that some other species than campanella would be a better choice. I would have guessed Xeromphalina fellea if it was i Scandinavia, but it’s not in the PNW key. There is one Xeromphalina cauticinalis, though…

Is there are good source on Xeromphalina species? Or what ones do you use?

Xeromphalina, yes

but the cap looks too yellow and pale for campanella. There are half a dozen others to choose from… Did you taste it?
