Thanks for the suggestion. I will update this observation in a couple weeks. Sorry for the lack of data, I needed the observation# for the dried collection. This was growing from soil beneath a boxed graden bed in an urban setting, the base of the stipe was buried and seemed slightly swollen. I took a cursory look at the hymenium last night; the spores were smallish and lacrymoid, they were hyaline so I’m assuming very immature. I didn’t get a good look at the cystidia but there appeared to be large broadly ellipsoid elements buried along the gill face. The gill edge had several narrow cylindric subcapitate elements.

It does look like some of the taxa in section Celluloderma, without microscopical data it is hard to make a more accurate guess
