*EDIT: Proposed names were removed, so this comment is a bit irrelevant now…

P. muricata and P. erinaceella are both currently in Flammulaster (F. muricatus and F. erinaceellus).

I do not think that this is a Flammulaster because those species are supposed to have an epithelium, meaning that the pileipellis consists of rounded cells, hence a more granular cap surface, which this does not have. Phaeomarasmius is very similar looking, but has a trichoderm, a shaggier or more tufted appearance due to the hyphae that stick out from the pileipellis. This kind of looks like that.. But not any species that I am familiar with. I wouldn’t rule out Pholiota either.

This is the same as observation 47455.
