Are the formal references, but I am also relying on and integrating these concepts with the descriptions and illutrations on MykoWeb and Mushroomhobby.

Which books are you using to get the Inocybe species descriptions?

Inocybe albodisca vs. I. brunnescens

I. brunnescens is a good first impression, but in that species, the white color of the disc is actually due to dense but flattened fibrous veil remnants. In I. albodisca (this obs), the white is simply a paler region of the cap (which is also lighter overall than in I. brunnescens). Also, this species usually has a distinctly pinkish stipe apex (incarnate in Nishida’s key), as well as a small but usually distinct basal bulb – these characters are not typical of I. brunnescens.

Also, as far as I can tell, I. brunnescens fruits in the early season, I. albodisca later.

may be inocybe or Pluteus but not likely, was it growing on wood?
