Spore print color…

yellowish/ochre. I wouldn’t have included “ochre” if the color was close to white. So I don’t think Clitocybe applies.

Looks kinda like a Hebeloma to me. Kuo lists most Hebeloma spore prints as tending toward pink. But Phillips describes several as “clay brown” or “rusty clay.”

Cystidia appear to be cylindrical or possibly clavate.

Not much fungal diversity happening around here right now. Good to have another look at this again.
