In reality more grey than shown in image. Growing up in the middle of a large (30cm+) black lichen and cladonia and mosses.

I wondered if it might be Lichenomphalia umbellifera (amongst other synonyms), the Heath Navel, though this is usually coloured as in the photo rather than the greyish colour you mention. Though Arrhenia (or Omphalina) griseopallida can be a pale grey-brown when dry, it would also be more funnel-shaped I think. Certainly the grooved radial structure of the convex cap strongly suggests Omphalina or a close relative.

Looks like Omphalina pyxidata to me

Wondered about pyxidata too - worth putting in as an identification?
