Mycena filopes – long thin colorless stipes, off-white caps with darker disc grey to light grey-brown, non-viscid, thin flesh even for a Mycena, slightly umbonate with a flaring cap, margin curved downward.

That will pretty much do it, the umbonate but rounded cap is a fairly good feature I was told.

I don’t doubt this ID at all – I just wanna know what characters to look for so I can recognize it.
