C. tenera is virtually impossible to distinguish from various Psathyrella species without looking at the colour of the gills. The shape and colour of the pileus (especially when hydrated and translucent), as well as the brittle stipe, are really comparable.
Without photos of the gills we will never know for sure, but to trust that the original identifier noted the colour of the gills or took a spore print.
