Blauwgrijze schorsmycena (dutch) - (blue grey bark-mycena/bonnet) . This one reminded me at the mycena interupta, but as far as i know, it isn't confirmed here yet. Therefore suspect i, a colorvariation of the previous spotting ( ). Take a look at the google-image link, there are some varations in color at this species.
