any clue on the surroundings

any clue on the surroundings and size of mushroom, from google looks like woodland in a park. I wonder about xerula radicata.

Although the shape is right

Although the shape is right for Xerula radicata it should have a smooth stem and a ridged cap. This find either has a granular stem (it could be just sand but that would make it a viscus stem) and it has a striate cap edge.
