Collybia maculata?

Just a guess. Photo in Audubon Guide to N.A. Mushrooms, #35, description p. 756. If so, would have a hollow stem, which currently has not been shown. The twisted stipe also suggests Melanoleuca, which often has striate twisted stipes. I think this collection is too light-colored for almost all Melanoleuca, though. Collybia is my first guess. Melanoleuca would be a distant second.

New photos confirms adnexed gills and twisted stipe with linear striations.

Did the pictures help?

Don’t think cap is umbonate

which would rule out Marasmius, Jason. I think the cap is centrally-depressed (umbilicate). And that distinctive bluish- to fuchsia-tint to an apparently pinkish cap is distinctive.

Need more data

From photos, appears pileus is about 1.5-2 inches across. But need height, and data on stipe, which are not shown in photos. I have seen this before as well, but without more data cannot provide better identification.

We have these “down here” in Wells Gray, too.

At least they look superficially the same: observation 23282

Do they grow in huge numbers there right after rains, too?
