No specimen available

Mealy cap? It was found along with a couple others that were identical in size and age in a wet lawn in my neighborhood growing in the grass in the front yard. It has a purplish gray top and bottom, the top was very thin and very flat, a thin long stem, no marks on the stem, no warts on the top, close spaced gills.


Picture from above looking down.
Out of focus side view. No distinguishing marks on the stalk. Cap has gills closely spaced.
Finger provides size reference.
I took this side view so you can see how flat, both the top and the bottom of the cap, flat as a pancake.
