Not easy to see detail

Collared Parachute has gills separated from the stem by a ring or collar, did you notice this? Also the caps are slightly larger (about 1.5cm) and stem longer (about 7cm) whereas Leaf Parachute cap about 1cm and stem about 3cm.
The depressed centre of the cap and grooves are in both species to slightly different degrees. However Flaxton is probably correct.
