It's really hard to tell without seeing any gills or fullgrown stipe. But I think this could become a Galerina species, based on the substrate, the colour, the texture of the capskin and the shape of the cap. I was also thinking about Psathyrella, but the cap is too pointy in my opinion. Anyhow it is pretty hard to give a confident ID on this LBM's haha!
