P. caerulipes is a good guess but this collection should be examined microscopically to separate it from P. quebecensis.

The cap color; pale margin, darker umbo. A few veil remnants left on the cap. Gill color, stature, dingy stipe with a whitish base.

If you had waited a few hours after you had picked it you would have seen the blue staining.

There has been lots of P. caerulipes out this year.

What makes you think that?

They look very much like ones identified as Gymnopus here before, and they lack any blue in the stipe that I can see.
