Recognized by sight: If the spores aren’t pink, then it’s probably an Inocybe. Based only on the cap shot, I’d lean towards Inocybe (“Fiber Heads”) over Nolanea, but I have to agree with Luke that the gill shot suggests a pink spore sprint. Odor would also be a great clue to have. Inocybes usually have fairly distinctive odors.

I wouldn’t lean towards Inocybe, but toward Nolanea. The shot of the cap shows it is hygrophanous, Nolanea mostly are hygrophanous, and Inocybe aren’t.

Entoloma or Nolanea

Looks like it might be in the Nolanea subgenus of Entoloma. Did it have an odor?
