The spore shape matches Inocybe pusio too. Size 8-11 × 4,5-6 µm?

Good call Irene. Looks like a match.

points toward Cortinarius. This mushroom is small for a cort. Cap diameter is about that of a dime. There also appears to be no evidence of a cortina.

spore colour?

Please update with the spore colour.

The overall colours look like some Cortinarius, but looking at the gills the spores seem like they are probably pink/buff or light in colour, rather than rusty. Maybe Entoloma.

Certainly have a better idea once the spore colour is known.
