Marasmiellus candidus looks a little similar. If you go hunting at Ohiopyle State park make sure to stop on the way in or out at dunbar creek at the state game lands. Prehaps 5 minutes away from the old peechins. So many cool mushroom there. I like the area near the road going along the creek up to the road that leads to the dead end at the game lands. I would say 25 percent of what I see there in the summer-fall I dont have any clue to what type of fungi it is. Lots of strange stuff. I have not been there for a few years but last time I was there I found 6 different species of cordyceps on insects. Cool stuff there but it looks like a good spot for some nasty snakes also.
