Recognized by sight: I found this in deep duff under mixed conifers and oaks. It was growing in massive solid clumps of 15 to 20 mushrooms attached at the base. The stem was stringy and sold with no noticable bruising other than where a larva had been eating it. There was no ring or veil, even on the buttons. The cap was white, solid and dense. Waiting for a spore print.

Looks like Lyophyllum

Although early for that in my area.

Your first photo does not appear to have gills, and the veil appears solidly attached to the stipe, suggesting something like Longula or other truffle on a stem. Other photos clearly show gills.
