I chose Camarophyllus pratensis because they are common to this area, and are included in my field guides. My understanding is that Hygrophorus nemoreus is somewhat larger and has gills that are usually not as decurrent.

Why not Hygrophorus nemoreus?

I ask this because once I found some similar to this one and could not decibe which of the two species was.
