I’ll put up the Lyophyllum connatum proposal and see if anyone weighs in.

You mentioned the Blewits. I find Lyophyllum connatum often growing nearby
Blewits. Both species prefer calcareous ground. But I think you will need
microscopy to identify that species correctly.

I’m not certain

how to characterize the odor. But there was a mild odor.

Fused stipe bases with cottony white mycelium.

Caps less than 2 inches diameter. Maybe a bit small for a mature Lyophyllum?

Hmmm…to me they look like old specimens of Lyophyllum connatum.
Do they have a specific, slightly “chemical” smell?
