I can see where you might have thought this to be Kuehneromyces, but glad that it didn’t make it into your fry pan, so to speak!

Here is a quite nice synopsis of the differences between two similar but deadly different species:
Galerina marginalia and Kuehneromyces mutabilis.

This is why most of us do not recommend little brown jobbers as edible species.

I know that you didn’t claim it was edible, but this discussion (recommending small brown mushrooms as edibles) has recently come up on BAMS, so bears repeating.
