are there Xerula/Hymenopellis other than X. rubrobrunnescens with marginate gills?

is most common in lawns from buried wood or roots. The cap color is right on. But those dark gill edges do not fit.

no further information.

i took this photo in 2010 and didn’t keep.
i for the life of me can’t remember the gill attachment.
sadly, all that remains are the photos.
i believe it was found on a golf course.

with the upturned cap and the Xerula-looking gills, but the habitat on face value doesn’t seem right. I don’t see an umbo, lined margin or wrinkles on the cap and the disc seems rather dark. The stem isn’t obviously rooting and seems rather short and curved and not graceful and tapered enough for Xerula megalospora. That still leaves the dark margin on the gills unexplained.

I can find that has marginate gills is Xerula rubrobrunnescens and this doesn’t match other pictures of that species. Any more info, Bloodworm? Gill attachment? Was it growing from something under the grass?
