I’ve never seen Armillaria and thought these seemed to be a possibility from what I read on Mushroom Expert but I can see how the aspect of the cap and stem seem a better fit for Hypholoma.

“Armillaria” and “Hypholoma fasciculare”, you might find that one set of results is more reminiscent of these mushrooms than the other…

Along with gestalt…
these would be extremely small for Armillaria
Armillaria stems are not all yellow
Armillaria veils don’t reach over the cap margin like these
There’s no hint of tiny scales/points on the caps, which Armillaria almost always have
Veil and gills both have yellow tints

matches this specimens growth habit and cortina-like partial veil; but what species?
