This is the first time I have seen this mushroom and I don’t have the slightest idea what it could be. Any help would be appreciated. The habitat is a forest where there are pine trees. It grew on the ground (not on a decayed piece of wood). No particular odor. The stem grows wider downward. The cap is small (3 – 4 cm)The cap is pale pinkish brown, protruding in the centre. No spore print. (Sorry!)

- it still looks like a possible geotropa. The smell isn’t always very strong.
I must admit that my nose may have failed to get the smell either because the specimens were too young or because I got something wrong with my nose. (I’m a heavy smoker and I might have failed getting the smell of it.) The next day in another place in the same area, I found a fully grown specimen. The edges of the cap had gone upwards forming a shape like a deep bowl. I think they were I. geotropa. Anyway, I did not take the risk and I threw it away. You know there’s no way back !
I can’t rule out geotropa, since it looks similar, but others in that genus can do that too at a young stage, and I don’t know what you might have in Turkey.
With no smell(?), I would at least not go as far as to “call it that”..
With the help of your comment, I was able to find out the name of this mushroom on the Internet. I also found out that it’s a preferable kind of mushroom in some parts of my country. I appreciate your help.
you’ve got some kind of Infundibulicybe there (earlier included in Clitocybe).
