Pseudoclitocybe usually has a quite recognizable shape to its cap. Best to fall back to a general clitocybe genus.

I agree with Darv and Noah.

Yes, a-typical shape.

I think this was id’ed by color of cap and gills, and size and stature. But, yes I would say this not a typical shape, but one that grew funny. Had kinda a spiral shaped cap.

Atypical shape?

This looks like an atypical specimen that lacks symmetry. All of them that I have seen had a consistent shape with a very round cap and thin stipe. The shape of this one is reminiscent of Clitocybe dealbata. I wonder if the spores were checked to see if they were amyloid.
