LBMs are such a pain.

The color of the cap along with the scales appears to be Inocybe. The gills look brown, not white and the gill edge shows a white margin.

Why do you think Inocybe?

There was no odor with these mushrooms — Inocybe usually has a distinct odor doesn’t it? And I’ve seen a lot of little sandy Laccarias in this area before, as well as their slightly more robust, peach-colored relatives.
