Oh okay, if no staining then it is probably M. cucumis.

it does look dark but did not bruise when i scratched it in lighter places. I was thinking it could be a Gymnopus/Collybia but could not find any with caps that dark in any of my books with photos.

Is that black staining I’m seeing on the stipe of one of the over-turned mushrooms??
