Thanks Jacob. My instinct said Xeromphalina campanella, but interesting/important to consider X. enigmatica as a possibility.

X. campanella indistinguishable from X. enigmatica without mating studies or DNA

Xeromphalina campanella can be distinguished from X. enigmatica only by mating studies or DNA sequencing. They’re effectively identical in macroscopic features, microscopic features, chemical features, geographic location, and substrate preference.
