Could be Pholiotina aporos

The spores there, being smooth, and lacking a germ pore this could be Pholiotina aporos, a spring-time Pholiotina, and one a very few that lack a germ pore. But to confirm you need to verify the cap surface, and look at the cheilocystidia. I recently found one here, and went through all the micro-details and posted those photos. So, you could look that up and compare.

Or it could be a Tubaria… (although I kinda think it looks more like a Pholiotina).

Although to be P. aporos it should have an annulus, and the stipe should be more off-white. So, not sure there, although the annulus is rather fragile, and comes off fairly easily. Maybe it is Tubaria…

Also looks like…

Could also be a Pholiotina. You could look at the spores, and tell. To get close to a species will take more than that, but you could get either Galerina or Pholiotina with the spores.
